After the drama with the car keys, it was 4:30 when we finally got on the road to Vegas. Paul read Walt Whitman aloud to pass the time.
It was still snowing like crazy, which made driving scary but photos awesome. We passed an accident that had just happened, when a woman spun out of control into a tree.
|It felt like we had moved to Narnia.|
As we drove south towards Williams, the snow gave way to torrential rain. Between Williams and the drive west to Kingman the snow and rain traded places every 10 minutes or so. The wind was pushing the car around. It was a horrible drive.
The next hour or so was pretty sombre. But eventually, our silence was broken when we rounded a corner to an amazing sunset which made the rugged desert look amazing.
We stopped at the Hoover Dam briefly before finishing the 5 1/2 hour drive to Las Vegas.
|At the Hoover Dam.|
|Our first sign of life as we approached Vegas after a long desert drive.|
