Layoff Week: Road Trip to Los Angeles

Well, the week off was not so restful for me. A crazy winter storm hit two-thirds of the U.S. and try as I might to outrun it, I failed. I drove from Louisville to Dallas on Monday, then woke up Tuesday to find an ice storm had hit Dallas. There was a thick layer of ice over all the roads so I was only able to drive about 25-30 mph on the highway because it was so treacherous. There were cars and trucks wrecked everywhere. I wanted to get to Santa Fe on Tuesday, but that didn’t happen. I only made it as far as Amarillo. I was really disappointed as I had pre-paid for my hotel in Santa Fe, and had to cancel a spa appointment that I had scheduled at a really awesome place called 10,000 Waves 😦 On Wednesday I continued to Santa Fe, and was able to spend the afternoon having a nice lunch and then watching movies in my lovely hotel room. It was unfortunately too cold to really spend any time outside (it was -2 degrees F). On Thursday I drove to Flagstaff, where I had dinner at the Beaver Street Brewery, and then on Saturday I made it across the desert to Los Angeles. I spent all day Saturday with my dear friends Chris and Sean, and then on Sunday I flew to Seattle. A whirlwind week of travel! Here it is in pictures:

  1. If it wasn’t for the car and that one dude walking, your picture of the Paramount would look like something from the 30’s.
    I love your pictures.
