As promised, here are the pics from the second day of travel, from Arizona to Texas. It was a very long day with a monotemous ending.
This is Arizona, which has been, so far, the best state to drive through. Its unfortunate that it was at the beginning. It was just beautiful, and for a lot of it I just sat there and imagined what it must have been like to come over the hills on a horse. You can just imagine the outlaws and sheriffs riding through. There were also a ton of trains going through. We concluded it must be the main railways between L.A. and Texas. It was just a very pituresque state to drive through. Texas and New Mexico never had a shot, really.
If you wondered what it looked like to fill up the truck, here ya go.
There was a series of signs that kept popping up throughout New Mexico and Texas. They were warning of large wind storms. I can’t imagine what it must be like to get caught in one of these. Chances are, you wouldn’t be able to read the signs.
Welcome to Texas. It should read, if you know what’s good for you, you’ll pull over in El Paso, get a plane ticket, and fly Arkansas.
This is Juarez, Mexico. You can see it from the freeway. When I was in high school, I had gone on a trip to Juarez to build a house with a group from Calvary. Looks the same today.
Only in Texas do they decorate water towers with high school football records.
This is going through a nice part of East Texas, through a mountain range. Its only nice because it was like Arizona.
You want to know what the rest of West Texas looked like?
