Day 2 – Holbrook on Route 66

Cacti from the Westerns

Steep hill to come

Driving from Phoenix to Holbrook, the vegetation changed from enormous cacti such as we see in the movies to scrubby bush, larger bushes and pine trees as we climbed to an elevation of 5000 ft. Holbrook was just a stopover en route to Canyon de Chelly and our ride on Route 66 was vey brief. Happily, we have done much more on previous journeys though I still have the dream to ride some of 66 on a Harley!

    If you see a Saguaro cactus, you are in the Sonoran desert. They do not grow anywhere else. Aren’t they amazing? They stimulate your imagination with their many different shapes.

      Thank you for that bit of info. Always good to learn names of plants and deserts! πŸ™‚

    Such expansive and western vistas, and always good to keep the dream in the forefront, as you have done with the Dream Harley.
