Get Your Kicks on Route 66…

We are on the road to Flagstaff as I write this. We spent the night at a La Quinta last night and had such a restful sleep! We rolled into La Quinta at 4:30 central time, and got so excited when we realized that we were gaining an hour! Woo…one more hour sleep! 🙂 we crashed and slept in until 9:00…took our showers, loaded the car…then checked the room 4 times to make sure we weren’t forgetting anything.

We had coffee and pastries at the local Starbucks and hit the road. Stopped at the pizza hut in Gallup, New Mexico for lunch and then learned, from my nephew, that only 10 feet away was a place named Earls that was only the best place in all of Gallup to eat. I guess we should have asked! 🙂

We stopped at a Native American store and did a little shopping, let the doggies go potty then back in the car to continue up the mountain to Flagstaff.

We are going to be gping by the Hoover Dam soo and Jenny just reminded me that we’ll probably have to take the new bypass that the built high up in the rocks above the dam…yikes, scary.

About 4 more hours and we’ll be in Phelan, can’t wait…but for now…good night.
