Welcome to Arizona

Lovely AZ sunset at the end of our day


Heading west from Amarillo we began seeing different landscape, buttes were forming. Then we crossed into New Mexico, full of lovely buttes. There was a wild sculpture, a large metal Roadrunner. I missed the shot, but I borrowed the photo from our friends Diane & Andy Hitzel (they took the same route, the opposite direction).

There were yellow wildflowers along the road and then miles of billboards for the Flying C Ranch. This old time Route 66 vendor didn't want you to miss his goods.

We began to climb in altitude eventually crossing the Continental Divide. Finally we crossed into Arizona, stopping for the night near Holbrook.
