pics from the road, route 93 – wickenburg to las vegas

We’ve been on the road this past week traveling on US Route 93 through northern Arizona and east of the Grand Canyon. This route is one of my favorite scenic drives. The road goes through Joshua Tree National Forrest (Arizona), special little towns like Wikieup, Lake Mead National Recreation Area and the Hoover Dam area. Most of the pictures were taken from our RV at 70 miles per hour (MPH). Come along as we travel the Barber road…

US Route 93 passes through a very beautiful part of northern Arizona. The Grand Canyon is breath taking and everyone should visit the Canyon at least once in their life, but don’t stop there – take time to see the rest of Arizona, you won’t be disappointed.
