Started our roadtrip off right with donuts from Miss Donuts.
Our journey from Los Angeles to Tucson began at 11:30 this morning. There are five of us in total, and we are going to Tucson to help promote Chi Alpha on the campus of A of U for the week.
It is quite honestly a very beautiful drive, hot but beautiful.
|There was no altering to the color of any of these photos. Beautiful.|
We made a couple stops on the way. One at a gas station that had pretty slim "pickin's" and the other at a rather robust gas station full of attractions. For example the claw game with more incentives than just the usual plush animal.
We also stopped for dinner at a place called Long Wong's, where they sell hot-wings and rice dishes. It was a gamble and definitely an experience.
|This is their awesome table cloth up close. Love it.|
When we got back on the road we drove through something that is referred to as a "haboob" (ok, take a moment and get all the inappropriate chuckles out), a haboob (again allow time for more chuckles) is defined as a violent thick dust and/or sand storm. What was strange was that while the sandstorm was going on it was also raining (perhaps this is normal, but I've never experienced a legit sandstorm like this before). We could hardly see what was ahead and actually pulled over for a moment.
