It could have been a vapor trail and dirty emissions from a plane but the shadow thing sounds better.
We met with a shower or two on the drive and passed Petrified Forest, Painted Desert, Meteor Crater and the Dinosaur Park in Holbrook............. and of course Grand and Walnut Canyons near Flagstaff.
We missed this picture but I found it on Bill and Barbara Windsor's web site called "Round America" at roundamerica.com day 33
On the way down to Phoenix we passed near the red rocks of Sedona and I remembered the striking "Chapel of the Holy Cross" designed by Frank Lloyd Wright (one of my favorite people). We had visited the chapel the past and it's amazing.
We finally arrived in Phoenix, cooled off the Musemobile, made tuna sandwiches and chicken noodle soup, watched a little TV("Hardball" on MSNBC and "Monk"), and took a desert sunset picture and I stayed up to write my blog.
Tommorrow we will be in Escondido. (not San Diego as I keep saying)
No Scrabble - Scrabble Queen was feeling a little under the weather from the heat (99 feels like 100) and the previously chosen route through Kingman looked pretty good after we got here their high was 74 and our low tonight is expected to be 80.
