Here we are! 1880 miles and 3 days later, we’re here!
We started out in Albuquerque and this morning did not even have to backtrack to get to a Starbucks! We started (and ended) the day out like we have the other 2 mornings: listening to the Money song by the OJays. Then it was back to her Vegas mix.
Today was a huge variety of landscapes and vistas. In particular, we had no idea that Flagstaff, Arizona was a little ski town. We’d been driving along in scenery that was expected from the southwest, and suddenly we drove through a green, forested, mountainous section. We checked the GPS a couple of times and kept on driving.
As soon as we crossed into Nevada, we got to stop and see the Hoover Dam. There’s a reason it’s the touristy, obligatory thing to do. Glenda gave me a primer on the whole art deco movement of the era while we took in the mindblowing engineering that the dam was and is.
Here are a few interesting sights we saw along the way today
Then we finally rounded the bend…
Instead of staying in a La Quinta out on the edge of town while we do our apartment hunting, my darling squeeze surprised us with reservations at the LVH!
Glenda’s excited and nervous and happy to be here. Mrs. Whiskers was a trouper, and hasn’t had much to say about being a Las Vegas kitty. Watch here for an update on apartment and job hunting.
Thanks for reading!
