Big Road Trip: Day Three and Four

Day 3, as I explained before, will be spent driving.  It will be the longest driving day in the trip.  It is the big push to get us out of "The South" and into "The West".  We will drive from San Antonio to Tucson, AZ.

Now, I am not a hot weather person.  Anyone who knows me at all can tell you that.  But I love Arizona.

It is hot.  Very, very hot.  But it's completely different from the heat we have over here in the Southeast.  You don't feel as....stifled? I guess is the term I'm looking for.  Even at temperatures over 100 degrees in Arizona, I can still breathe and I don't feel as claustrophobic as I do when the temperatures hit anywhere above 80 degrees here. 

And Arizona is beautiful.  In this strange and barren way, it is one of the prettiest places in the US.

So I'm looking forward even to the driving part of this day's trip up through Arizona.

We will be ending this day at the Grand Canyon.  I honestly can't even describe the Grand Canyon to you.  It's one of those things that you kinda know is going to be really cool.....and then you actually see it and it completely takes your breath away. 

This is Havasu Falls....I'm hoping to get over to this if time allows. (I think it will)
So.  That's Day Three and Four.  I really really really can't freaking wait for this trip. 


  1. Just wondering, but doesn't it get exceptionally cold at night? And aren't we supposed to be camping??

  2. Not in the summer. I went for a walk at midnight when I was there, and the bank marquee said it was still 100 degrees.
