The Desert Southwest
We continued our transit west today as we entered the desert southwest of the country. We drove almost 700 miles to make it to Phoenix in what was the longest transit day I've been apart of so far. With scenery like this though, it actually went by kind of fast. Luckily we transitioned through two time zones so we picked up a couple extra hours along the way. It is days like this that come to mind when people ask if we pack up the blimp in a trailer and drive it to the next city. If only it was that easy! Of course, it wouldn't make this job nearly as fun either.
