Back From California

It was about a five hour trip from Chino, CA to Yuma, AZ. We traveled along the roads just a little bit more confidently now that we knew our exhaust pipe wasn't going to set the rear of the coach on fire. Sometimes, it's the little things that bring a smile to your face.

The drive was a pleasant one. We got the heavy-traffic part out of the way after the first hour so the remainder of the trip was relaxing. After spending so much time in the desert, the greens of California were a pleasure to see.

Along Rte 86 we passed a huge windmill farm. It's hard to gauge scale from a photo like this but these are huge, with some as tall as a football field is long, and there are hundreds of them lined up in rows like soldiers.

Along the way we hit a stretch of road near the Salton Sea with unexpected dips in the road. Not a pleasant sensation to suddenly feel airborne! We discovered after our trip was done that our clothes had all been bounced off the closet rod. That was a first.

Bob and I had a quiet night in Yuma and headed out in the morning towards Tucson. Our plan is to relax for a couple of weeks before starting East. We have a lot of interesting places to see along the way, so stay tuned!
