Day 20 - Uneventful Travel Day
Sunday, September 23, 2012
Still dark when we woke to the stars above, it was 79 degrees at 6am.
We broke down camp and had a light breakfast at the site before embarking on the day's journey.
The odometer was at 5,647 miles as we entered the I-40 eastbound ramp. Within minutes, we crossed the Colorado River and entered Arizona.
It was an uneventful day on the road, with the Painted Desert being a highlight of the vast and barren landscape through AZ and NM.
We covered a lot of ground, and pulled off the road around 5pm at a Holiday Inn Express in Albuquerque.
Solo need a romp in the park, so we played frisbee before I used the facilities at the hotel to catch up on loads of laundry.
While I slaved away, Bill found the best pizza of the trip from Nine, a Yelp recommendation. It was delivered to our room.
We were in heaven with clean clothes, a tired pooch, full bellies and air conditioning!
