Road Trip -- Day 1: Leaving The Valley
Some of you may recall that I've been making preparations for a full-scale digital nomad tour of the Pacific Northwest. Today I departed from Scottsdale, leaving behind the searing heat and some great memories. Today's vertical range from the Valley of the Sun was from a little over 1100 feet to just over 7,000 feet. The temperature range was 107 to 72. I drove through a dust storm, just missed a rock slide, and narrowly avoided hitting some spilled firewood in my path while traveling well above the posted speed limit. Somebody up there likes me.
I hope you enjoy the moody shot of Monument Valley taken from the Arizona side.
