How odd is this, I woke up under palm trees, had breakfast beside the London bridge, drove past epic monuments and ended up in my favorite town in Utah, Moab.
No I wasn’t on a vision quest in the Arizona desert, rather I was just heading to the Moab Easter Jeep Safari, but I started at the Super 8 Motel in Havasu and woke up to an amazing sunrise and a palm tree in my window. I grabbed some breakfast at a little joint that is next to the London Bridge. You may think I’m lying, but follow this link, you’ll see it actually is located in Havasu City, Arizona.
From Havasu I headed towards Moab, but first a quick stop in Williams Arizona for lunch, Pie.
Did you know that the town closest to the southern entrance of the grand canyon is Williams, and a town close to the north rim entrance of the Grand Canyon is called Fredonia? Fredonia Williams, hmmmmm. That is some wacky vision quest stuff right there!
Finally it was northbound through Flagstaff and monument valley, one of my favorite places. There is something special about northern Arizona and southern Utah.
Along the way I saw a really cool old power wagon bus, this is the type of bus you might pack up and go travel the world in if you like to be a crazy desert dwelling star gazing world explorer, I dug it!
I finally rolled into Moab and stopped to see Tom Woods from Tom Woods Custom Driveshafts, but more on that tomorrow.
