Road Trip Part 3

As we left the National Park we started to head into some mountains. This Shows how completely naive I am. I had no idea we would see mountains in Arizona. None at all. And to be honest part of the mountains we very tree-y and such like colorado, then we hit the desert mountains. It was all amazing and very interesting.

We watched this storm head in across the plains and it met us in the mountains.

Now in Minnesota we are used to violent thunderstorms and tornados. Hail is not uncommon at all in Minneosta. But when your in the middle of Arizona and the hail is so hard and so strong that in 3 minutes it looks like it has snowed, thats something I have never seen. We did drive right through while other were stuck and slipping, but even still it was amazing to me how fast and hard the hail fell.

My first big cactus!!!!!! I was screaming in delight as I took this picture.

No one else would get out of the car here for fear of rattlesnakes or scorpions or whatever else the desert might be home too. I was brave. I wanted to see the cactus up close. They are amazing!

Part 4 coming soon....
