Desert Rain

Yes please. In Arizona about to go to the Grand Canyon. No pics yet today but figured I should post in case I have trouble finding WIFI later. I never thought I would be so happy to see clouds. It was still really hot but the lack of direct sun helped a lot. As I gained altitude and neared Grand Canyon Park the clouds got thicker and the rain showers got longer. The first shower was about 15 seconds. Now they are lasting a whole minute. There is lots of lightning activity in the distance, cross those fingers that I’ll get a Canyon and lightning shot.
When I was planning this trip I tried to find Route 66 on the maps and couldn’t so I gave up. Today I discovered that it runs almost parallel to I-40. I thought about getting off the Interstate and heading along the 66 but then I started thinking that I should keep this as my adventure and not follow the path of those generations that came before me and traveled Route 66 when that was the only/best way to travel. I’m part of the Divided Highway Generation, we drive at the speed we want and don’t watch for oncoming traffic. We are awesome! All of the Route 66 travelers have my respect and thanks for giving me something to emulate but not copy.
Might be pictures later.
