An uneventful drive so that's a good thing. You can smell the stockyards before seeing them in northern TX. Each time I do this drive I swear, never again yet my daughter wanted me to get into her condo in AZ and bring pictures and a vase, I wanted to bring golf clubs and the bike so it's likely similar circumstances exist on my next visit, in September.
I drove 800 miles the first day, staying in Tulsa then 1100 miles the second day while passing through Hatch, NM. It's the Chile Capital of the World or so they say.
Many dozens of figurines line the streets.
A hamburger joint.
A strange place and then, reaching southern AZ....
....Amy and I drove up the paved side of Mount Lemmon to check out a trail head for an upcoming hike and then, for the first time, drove down the back side via the dirt road to Oracle, AZ. More to come.
