The Last Leg

by Kay~Kacey on 1/17/2009

Yep, we finally made it to the last leg of the trip…

cactus skyline

Still traveling on Highway 10…but in New Mexico. Lots of cactus.

ipod music

SuperGuy did most of the driving…but I did the important stuff. Like fiddled with the ipod to keep us in tunes.

iphone maps

….using the iphone and its maps to find our way. (I’m going to do a whole post on using the iphone on a road trip. Later. After we get home. But, oh my gosh, it tells you everything. From where the hotels are, where to eat… to where to find a car wash!)

new mexico roads

After traveling along the pretty New Mexico roads, we finally saw this…

california state line

We finally, finally saw the California state line! After Missouri, Arkansas, Texas…and more Texas, Arizona? (is that right?), New Mexico and finally California. I can almost taste the brilliance that is Palm Desert…

desert floor

We drop down to the desert floor. The iphone tells me the temperature is 80!! Yes, count ‘em, 80 degrees!!!

To be continued…

Did you take that first photo?
It’s kind of the opposite of the ones SuperGuy took. :wink:

Ah … California … I’ve never been. I love the photos. I hope Palm Springs is a blast!

What happened to Arizona? I think you must have been napping (that long, straight road can have that effect), but after New Mexico is Arizona, THEN Cahl EEfornEEa!

So much fun! I married my iphone last year. It is a blissful union;) Enjoy that weather!

Eighty degrees! How delightful! Glad to see y’all have reached your destination!

I love your pictures. Your trip looks like a lot of fun. What are you using to connect your ipod? i’ve got this huge dock that i hate & would like to use something smaller.

The Caddy has an auxiliary input jack on it. I just bought a cable at Walmart that goes from the stereo headphone jack to the aux input on the Caddy’s radio. We also have a cigarette lighter/charger for the iphone/ipod so we could run it all day.

80!! Wow. I can’t imagine. It’s below freezing here…..

Yeah, it’s Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, then California. :)

When we went to NYC in early December, it was the iPhone that we used to get everywhere. It told us everything, even when we couldn’t remember the name of the actor who starred in “what was the name of the movie with the chimps and the ice cream” and well, I would love an iPhone. And a new zoom lens. And a trip like you’re on.
Love living vicariously through your lens!

It’s New Mexico then Arizona then California! I miss Arizona as I have become one with the desert. Really…it is a strange occurance!
