Cadillac Ranch

video

Cadillac Ranch: an art installation consisting of multiple 1950's Cadillacs planted face down in the ground. It is meant to demonstrate the evolution of the car at what the artist considered the signature era of the American automotive industry. Spray cans are left around, and visitors are encouraged to make their mark.

Caught in a storm



We were originally going to camp in Sedona (south of Grand Canyon) on our second day, but then got caught in some serious downpour in Flagstaff. Then, we used our handy internet stick to look up weather, and saw numerous flash flood warnings for the area. So, we decided to book it out of Arizona and go all the way to Albuquerque tonight to get a hotel instead! The lightening and crazy dark clouds were pretty entertaining though, and somewhat beautiful with all the red rock scenery we passed by. You can see how it was as we entered New Mexico in the top picture... what a welcome!

(so take it easy)

The Grand Canyon



Here we are in the Grand Canyon. It can not be put into words, even pictures don't do it justice. Absolutely gorgeous.

Night 1: Cataract Lake, Williams AZ

This is just south of the Grand Canyon, and conveniently off of the main highway! The town nearby is a former Route 66 stop off point, so the main street is lined with 1950's-era motels and diners. Pretty awesome...

day 1: on route to the grand canyon


The prius is packed, and we are on the road. Our first gas-refill stop was Riverside. We are currently in the car, driving through Barstow CA. The Virgin Mobile USB modem is working like a charm. Next up: Grand Canyon

Suggestions?

Hey! Eran here. Sarah and I are looking for any suggestions anyone might have for spots that we should stop at throughout our trip. If you know of a great place that falls along our route please leave a comment. Sightseeing spots, museums, restaurants, etc, anything at all.

Thanks!
