We took off for the first leg of our excursion this morning. It was a short leg in comparison to others along our route, in that we are only a couple of hours up the road from home, camping in Kingman, AZ. There is good reason, however, to stop here tonight. We originally were going to go the distance to Pahrump, NV, but a closer look at that plan showed us transiting Las Vegas at a peak traffic time.
Tomorrow, it’s off to Pahrump with a trip across the new Hoover Dam bypass bridge. The last time we went that way, the bridge was still under construction. Damsel plans to photographically record our entire trip, as usual, including the bypass. I don’t know if there is a place to stop in a scenic overlook up there, but I guess we’ll find out.
