I was super excited to see these trees everywhere even though I had zero clue they were Joshua trees. I seriously never knew a Joshua tree was a real thing…to me it was just the title of a U2 album!
After a long day this hit the spot. See those little biscuit? Oh my goodness they were so amazing!
We decided to stop in Flagstaff for breakfast at Brandy’s which has been featured on Diners, Drive Ins and Drives. The coffee was excellent!
And the food did not disappoint! I am not a huge pancake fan but these were probably the very best pancakes I had ever had. Eggs benedict of just about every variety were tops too!
New Mexico was next and honestly at this point the drive had not been that bad. Arizona and New Mexico really have so much beautiful scenery.
And this amazing sunset was behind me! We ended up chasing a really crazy thunderstorm with lots of cloud to ground lightning but thankfully didn’t run through any heavy rain. We made it to Amarillo for the night.
We slept in and then stopped by Cadillac ranch. I mean I don’t know how many times I’ll actually make it to Amarillo so it was a must!
Riley dropped me off at DFW and about 10 miles down the road the A/C went out in my car. Nevermind that it was 87 degrees out but I had 103000 miles on my car….so my warranty just expired last month..boo! I decided a perfect cream cheese kolache warmed just perfectly was just what I needed to make it the rest of the way home!
This trip was so much fun. Even though we didn’t do that much the time I spent with Riley just talking and shooting the shiz was the best!
