What an exhausting drive today. Fortunately I was able to leave my house at about 12:45pm and we arrived in Barstow at around 8:30pm. We stopped a few times, either to stretch our legs or grab some snacks. Because I did do quite a bit of driving, I do not have many photos from today. Highway 5 isn’t exactly the most scenic ride anyway.
I did manage to take a photo with my iPhone of Altamont Pass, and filtered it using Instagram:
Windmills seem to be a theme of my photos for the day. We were driving along highway 58, the highway that connects Bakersfield to Barstow, and I had to pull over because the sun setting behind the mountains to the west was truly remarkable. We paused off of some random exit between Mojave and California City. I wish we could have stayed to watch it completely set, but we didn’t have time.
There should be a lot more photos tomorrow. The plan is to drive directly to Sedona and explore more red rock country (my favorite!). Stay tuned.
