Three 6-8-hour days behind the wheel and two nights in motels gets you from my home in Las Vegas to Seguin, Texas, which is about an hour south of Austin.  You see a lot of spectacular scenery on the drive, wide open and still wild in its way.  It’s an inspiring journey.

Above, I approach Flagstaff, Arizona on the first day, which takes me as far as Phoenix.  Most of Phoenix is over-built and generic, like most of the greater Los Angeles area.  It is not inspiring.

I was really looking forward to hitting Texas the next day.
