The elevation of flagstaff is higher than the rest of the state so the flora was different than the rest of the state. Lots of pine trees. It reminded us more of Northern Michigan than Arizona. This was our last day of driving. We hit the road early heading south through Phoenix then along the USA / Mexico boarder over the mountains into San Diego. As we got closer to the mountains the wind was blowing hard and we were driving straight into it. As we began to climb the mountains in this rolling storage locker the steep incline slowed us down to 30 mph several times. We finally made it through the mountains and we got to our new house right on schedule.
We are former Travelpod members looking for a new home. Travelblog feels like home.
We are a couple of middle-aged mid-westerners that love to experience the world. We love food and drink and getting as close to the locals as they will allow. :-)
