Long day today. I-10 still pretty quiet. Posted speed limit is 80 MPH. Needless to say, everyone was passing us doing 65 MPH.
The winds picked mid afternoon making driving interesting. Our GPS advised us of a traffic delay near our exit. Sure enough, 4 exits before our exit, everything came to a screeching halt. Add the traffic jam, it took us 9 1/2 hours of driving. Oh Yeah. We entered Mountain time zone so add another hour.
Set up camp, had a glass of sherry and put our feet up. Our current elevation is 3,740 feet.
