This was the longest trip we had in Arizona and what a difference ! At first we still had hot sunny weather and lots of cacti along the way but then the scenery changed and it got colder and grey and when we were almost in Flagstaff we saw…snow ! It wasn’t that cold ! about 20 C° and snow ? We had a wonderfull hotel there and we had a great time, very relaxing.
WE STOPPED TO SEE THE LAKE NEAR THE HOOVER DAM
AND TO OUR SURPRISE WE SAW THE CUTEST LITTLE ANIMALS ; CHIPMUNCKS, THEY WERE EVERYWHERE
Soon it was time for lunch and we stopped somewhere on route 66 , there was a place called The Roadkill Cafe, their motto : you kill it we grill it . We had a lovely meal and a coke served in a big goblet, we thought this was really funny. Outside this cafe there were some old remnants of a town build by the first cowboys we think.
AND THE MOST FUNNY THING ; A TOILET FOR TWO, very cosy….
AND THIS OLD CAR HELD A LOVELY SURPRISE, WHEN I LOOKED INSIDE I FOUND…
A CACTUS !
And then we travelled further to Flagstaff where we arrived late afternoon.
Have a great week all ! and thanks for stopping by.
Happy Easterweekend to all of you. For me it is usually the start of a new garden season and better weather.
Have fun and maybe you can do something pleasant in your garden !
NARCISSUS TETE A TETE, A SIGHT FOR SORE EYES AFTER A LONG AND DULL WINTER
So we have been travelling in Arizona for about 17 days. First we flew from Brussels to London and from there to Las Vegas (Nevada) as we wanted to see Arizona from North to South. There was a hired car waiting for us there and off we went. As the trip was long and tiring we wanted to relax in Vegas and see a bit of Vegas too. That is quite a special city, it is all about the gambling and the booze and the lights ofcourse. As we don’t drink or gamble we did a lot of sight seeing and we loved what we saw; the nature and the gardens and the animals in the city.
And it was hot hot hot, we came from 3 C° in Belgium to 30 C° in Vegas.
Have a great weekend all !
Hello my dear blog friends I am back. I have been travelling the state of Arizona and I’ll soon show you the pictures I took over there. As you know (or not) my travels are about nature and art; animals, birds, flowers and cacti. And I was spoiled in Arizona cos it was cactus heaven for me !
