Well we had been in Phoenix long enough that we knew our way around, Routes 101, 102, 87, etc. and we had enough heat so we decided to head north. We climbed up in altitude and in fact it was about 5 miles up and only 1 mile down so we are at a higher altitude. This time there were runaway ramps on the downside (parts of Rockies don't have them) As we headed north the topography changed we got more grass (not green but white) and as we continued we got ...
... everything we read never mentioned that you couldn't actually go in it. If you're considering going...be aware of that. It hasn't allowed visitors actually on the cliffs in the castle since 1951.
We leave there and head back towards the interstate, where we go north a couple of miles and take off the interstate to our next stop. Luckily, along the way, there was a Starbucks so we could get lattes. No reason to be uncivilized ...

When they got up to do a choreographed number, the ...
... feature very heavily in our conversations, so you can imaging how stoked we all were when Nick's surprise stop today was one of Forrest Gumps memorable moments. It's the one where Forrest is running around the country with a whole lot of people following, he's on highway 63 mile marker 13, he stops and says "I'm tired, I'm goin home". Brilliant we all had to have a photo of us running up the hill.
