    Hoover Dam

    July 26 in the United States

    Der Hoover Dam scheint beinahe ausgetrocknet. Ein blick aufs Thermometer verrät uns auch warum, 44°C.

  • Day20

    Arizona

    September 20 in the United States

    Fangin' it down the Interstate towards the Hoover Dam, Hualapai Mountain arches up like a yawning and stretching Ankylosaurus above blue plains, loud Mozart on the stereo, travel feels GOOD again.

    Animal notes: California Condors floating over stony plains, a Coyote yowling all night, an ugly bug by the side of the Highway where we stopped to piss, and happy caramel coloured cows.

    Who turned up the sun?

    July 19, 2017 in the United States

    Apologies for the late 'footprint'. We camped in Lake Havasu last night very much in the wilderness on the Colorado River. It was magical. We swam in the river which was heavenly in the 40° heat! I've never experienced heat like this before. It's so hot and dry it's like standing in an all over body dryer. It's bizarrely not that unpleasant. I struggled more with the heat in the cities.

    The views along our tour guided road trip through California and into Arizona were stunning with the biggest and best views to come today as we arrive at the Grand Canyon.

    The group we're with is small and friendly although Kate and I are the oldest (including the leader!). We decided between us we were going to try as many different oreo flavours as we could. This can only end badly. The adventure got off to an interesting start when we attempted to take an alternative route to a rest stop and found ourselves stuck in the dust. It took the entire group to push the mini bus out. We still think it was probably a thinly disguised bonding exercise!

    I look forward to sharing more photos with you soon.

    Joshua Tree National Park to Lake Havasu

    April 13 in the United States

    Today we spent driving around Joshua Tree National Park. Two distinct desert ecosystems, the Mojave and the Colorado, come together in Joshua Tree National Park. 

    We had lunch at Quail stop and then did a 1 km loop at Hidden Valley. Brandon walked all the way around and made it without being carried. Inara wanted to be carried most of the way but insisted on walking anything that was up. It was beautiful and everything looked the same. The ranger yesterday told Brandon that he needed to stay close to us as it looks all the same and it's very easy to get lost. It does.

    We finished the visit with a stop at Key View which was breathtaking, windy and cold.

    When we got to the camp, it was so windy and not fun that we decided to change our plans. We couldn't walk as it was too windy, and we couldn't have a fire, the tent felt like it could break and it was cold. It was no fun for anyone.

    We were supposed to have a 2nd night here, then to pack up and a 6 hour drive to Flagstaff Arizona. We packed up late in the afternoon, drove 3 hours and decided to stay a night in Lake Havasu in a motel in the area.

    Roadtrip nach Arizona

    August 9 in the United States

    Den heutigen Tag verbrachten wir quasi nur im Auto! Aber so ein Fahrtag muss sein und ist völlig okay auf so einem krassen Roadtrip🌍🇺🇸 Die 6-stündige Autofahrt nach Kingsman unserem Tagesziel (noch knapp 2 Stunden vor "Grand Canyon Village") wurde natürlich noch etwas verlängert, da wir immer wieder kleinere oder größere Zwischenstopps machten zum fotografieren📸, Aussicht genießen🏜 oder um nette Zwischenziele wie zum Beispiel die Geisterstadt Oatman 🧟‍♂️🧟‍♀️ (ehemalige Goldminenstadt) anzufahren!
    Schon die Strecke Richtung Norden war landschaftlich wunderschön und auch das kleine Örtchen PALM SPRINGS, das als eine elegante Oase (Boutiquen, eine Seilbahn & Thermalquellen) in der Wüste betitelt wird, war nett anzusehen!
    Richtig beeindruckend wurde es dann mit überqueren des COLORADO RIVER und somit der Grenze nach ARIZONA!
    Wir waren dermaßen geflasht von der Schönheit der Landschaft, dass wir aus dem Staunen nicht mehr raus kamen und gefühlt hundertmal angehalten haben😁
    ...Und das bei 110°F (d.h. 43°C!!!) Absolutes Wüsten-Wetter vom Feinsten!🌡🌞😓
    Diese unendliche Weite, kilometerlange gerade Straßen, Windräder, die gigantischen Bergpanoramen, die sowohl auf den Bildern als auch in Wirklichkeit wie gemalt aussehen!🏔🏞 Dann noch die Fahrt zwischen Oatman und Kingsman auf der legendären "Historic US Route 66"! Dieser Straßenabschnitt schlängelt sich über den wunderschönen "Sitgreavespass"! Links sahen wir tiefe Schluchten umgeben von steilen Felswänden (und in der Ferne oben auf dem Vorsprung einen schwarzen Esel🐴 Das war ein überragender Anblick🤩), schöne Täler oder auch hügelige Abschnitte mit hunderten Kakteen🌵🌵🌵(Wahrzeichen von Arizona🏜)!
    Unfassbar schööön! Das muss man gesehen haben!😍 Wir sind immer noch beeindruckt von diesem wundervollen Tag und der einmaligen Autofahrt!😍

    Saugut geschlafen

    October 10 in the United States

    auf einem Campground am Rande von Kingman, direkt neben der I40. Als wir gestern Abend so gegen 18:30 ankamen, war der Platz schon weitgehend mit ausgewachsenen Wohnmobilen gefüllt, viele davon sahen nach Langzeit-Campern aus.
    40 $/2P*Nacht für WiFi (mit häufigen Aussetzern), full hook up und großzügigen, ordentlichen Waschräumen.

    Heute morgen wieder früh aufgestanden. Nach Morgentoilette und gemütlichem Frühstück 🍳 gabs den großen Clean Up inklusive Abwasser entsorgen und Tank befüllen. Dann noch kurz einkaufen und weiter fahren Richtung Joshua Tree NPRead more

    God Dammit Hoover.

    August 7, 2017 in the United States

    Had a super early run to Yavapai Point to watch the sun rise. Back for brekkiie. Then off to say a final farewell to the Canyon from the appropriately named Grand View Point. Probably the best view of the Colorado we've seen. Enjoyed the peace & solitude until a noisy Japanese family appeared. Time to make a sharp exit. The small matter of 250 odd miles to Boulder City & the Hoover Dam. Decided to fill up (the car & us) at Williams - should be cheaper. The freeway junction was before town so we had to make something of a detour. By chance that meant we drove a little of Route 66. Williams was the last town to be bypassed. It was full of Americana looking shops & a Safeway. Stocked up for the journey ahead. Unfortunately the phone satnav wasn't playing ball so distances & arrival times were the old fashioned guestimate. What didn't help was the appalling standard of the motorway surface - pot holes on a motorway is just not safe. This is what you get in a low tax, small state, low investment society. Cruised along, searching for cacti and listening to a popular beat combo from Liverpool. Bizarre world. Made it to the Dam, allbeit with a couple of detours - one scenic outlook and one to try to approach over the dam - don't let you. Did as we were told & faced security, queues for parking & then more security to get in the visitor centre. And the heat!!! Some respite in the centre & jumped the queue with having booked online. Watched a video preaching how heroic it all was & then queued for a lift down to the powerplant. The scale was massive & all the while the subtle vibration of flowing water being channelled beneath. Battled the heat to get some photos outside - both on the dam and from the nearby bridge. The cooling stations dotted around the area helped ensure Liz didn't pass out. Once done - onwards to Boulder City. Hotel had a pool which was good. Did a little washing & it was dry in next to no time. Tea was at a diner that served drinks in the biggest jam jars that existed. Superb food as well.Read more
