Pictures of the drive from Boulder City, Nevada to Williams, Arizona!
A 3 hour trip that was about 190 miles.
When I travel from place to place, I don’t only like to see and take pictures of the destination, but the journey too. I find it fascinating what different places look like! The trees change, you see all kinds of different vegetation; there’s variance in the landscapes with flat plains to mountains, cool rock formations; and of course all kinds of different houses and buildings!
When we took our trip out west, I wasn’t expecting much. Mostly flat desert plains I guess, long boring 2-3 hour drives from place to place. Boy was I wrong! It was super interesting(although I’m sure it gets common place after you’ve lived there a while). I couldn’t stop taking pictures left and right.
Most of these photos are nothing exceptional, they’re not a showcase of my photography skills by any means. What they are though is a documentary journey on what the places in between look like. So I decided to start a little series entitled “On the Road Again!”, and I will be posting even more pictures to my flickr gallery album collection from each journey I take, from place to place. Hope you find them interesting!
We stopped for lunch at a fast food place in Kingman, near a gas station and other small stores. It was pretty packed. A lot of tourists and people from LA and Las Vegas. There were also Chinese tour buses probably on their way to the Grand Canyon as well.
The rest of the drive was easy, well the whole drive was really! All on a highway with decent, but not crazy traffic. I thought as we got closer to Williams and the Grand Canyon it would start getting more desert looking, more red rocks-like those you see in pictures of the Canyon. But it didn’t. It got greener-we were entering the Kaibab National Forest afterall, so I guess I should have thought of that lol. And in fact when we got up to Williams there was a huge mountain filled with evergreens on the right hand side of us! I missed getting any good pictures of it unfortunately, but it was pretty tall! I’m pretty sure it was called Bill Williams Mountain. Part of the San Fransisco Peaks.
And there we made it, arriving in Williams, Arizona on Sunday afternoon. Now time to explore this little town on Route 66, check in at our hotel and get some food!
