Phoenix onto Flagstaff

Prelude to Phoenix onto Flagstaff This post is about the 6 days between Phoenix onto Flagstaff and the adventures on the way. Let me remind you, it had been very hot, and made venturing out of the air-condition comfort very challenging.  I guess that’s my only excuse for not going[…]
