We left Las Cruces, NM pretty early so we could get into town, check in, change, and go to the Mid-Week Meeting in Phoenix this evening (Hebrews 10:23, 24).
On this portion of I-10 we drove through dust storm warning areas.
When we passed the Saguaro National Park I made a literal note to go back and explore there soon.
It was so serene.
During this drive we found out where truck stop coffee comes from… a tanker. That would explain the bitterness.
We beat rush hour and checked in to the Ramada in Glendale, on the north side of Phoenix (see review warning/notes below).
Meeting with the Bellair Congregation was lovely. Their Hall is beautiful and the people were very warm. We met a family who just came back from the North Rim and they gave us tips on what to see at the Grand Canyon.
I would NOT recommend the Ramada in Glendale, Arizona:
- Very sketchy people in the parking lots at all hours of the day and night.
- Non smoking rooms reeking of smoke.
- Huge stains in the carpet.
Tomorrow we head to the Grand Canyon!!
