Lake Havasu City, AZ

Friday night, March 13 and no internet access so I'm writing this in Word and will put it into my blog later. We decided not to "do" the Grand Canyon due to snow and cold. We can go to Indiana for that so we headed west for 200 miles from Flagstaff AZ to Lake Havasu City, AZ. Now it is 77 degrees today in Lake Havasu City. Gorgeous weather!!! Drove another 75 miles to check out Parker, AZ (round trip) to see the sights. We didn't stay long there. Just a big Casino. Took 4 pictures along the way. The mountains were beautiful but really not worth the trip. Returned to Lake Havasu City and walked along the canal by London Bridge. Enjoyed the walk, had supper, shopped a little, went for another walk and spent the night in a Travelodge.

Never thought I'd be saying that I was ready to see trees. We have loved the warm weather, mountains, lack of pot holes, few big ugly billboards, straight streets, no litter, sunshine, sunshine, sunshine. Will be 125 degrees here this summer. March was a perfect month to travel here. Very easy driving except for the trip from Las Vegas airport to Borgaards. Everything else has been easy. Great driving! Little traffic!

But...I'm ready to see something besides scruffy landscape with cactus or scruffy bushes sticking up once in a while. the landscape is the same everywhere you look. The mountains are constantly changing shape and color and are magnificent, but we have see enough.

Tomorrow we will head for Needles, CA and spend our last night (just a very few hours back at Borgaards. Our plane flies out at 6:30 a.m. and we will need to be at the airport at 4:30 a.m. Who knows, maybe we will just spend the night at the airport! I'll find out tomorrow!
