So after my bad nights Sleep in Rico I was not in the greatest of Moods this morning 😞

However the drive to Williams fixed that nicely.

It was astonishing how quickly you go from amazing Green Lush of the Rockies into stark Desert of New Mexico and Arizona.

When I stopped at 4 corners it was around 11:00 am. This is one of those places you have to stop at. Four US states come together here in one place. The only such instance in the US. The four states are Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah.
And then Just as suddenly I was back in Green Mountains.
I got somewhat lost in Flagstaff, The damn GPS insisted I turn Right but they have redone the interchange and there was no way of going right.
Flagstaff seems to be fairly pretty but I was so annoyed with the GPS that I just wanted to get the hell out of there.

I experienced my first US thunderstorm. I am sure I saw lightning striking a mountain. It reminds me very much of a Highveld thunder storm.

Finally arrived in Williams and Route 66 😊
And to my great relief the the Super 8 in Williams is everything the Rico Hotel was not. The Room is spacious it has air con and the bathroom is fairly decent. I even have a coffee machine in my room.
