Arizona and Home Sweet Home

I made it. Actually I made it yesterday and then kind of zoned out and played with my dog.

The last leg of the trip went well. I was up early and so spent a little time cruising Route 66 in Kingman. Nothing was open yet.

I want to go back and visit this old powerhouse. It is a Route 66 museum.
The clouds were dark and heavy as I headed south along the Joshua Tree Forest scenic drive.

I stopped in Wickenburg for breakfast and just after I left town Doug called to tell me to take a different route that would help me avoid driving through most of Phoenix.
I was less than a mile from that turnoff so it was kind of strange. That is the only time he has called when he knew I was on the road.
The route took me past Lake Pleasant and to the I-17 just north of the 101 which took me right to home.
Maggie was glad to see me. I was certainly glad to see her.
Totals for the trip:
Six states
3327 miles
Twenty-three days
Now I'm anxious to see my friends and my favorite coffee shop, work on my book. finish my travel journal and just enjoy being home.
