So we were off bright, but not too early, to get to Albuquerque for lunchtime. It's only a two hour drive so we didn't want to get there too quickly.
Um, as for thinking we'd not see a traffic jam until we got back to LA...didn't quite work out that way. Outside a reststop, headed east, at least two big-rigs crashed. It was a mess. This traffic went on for miles. And, unlike most traffic jams in LA, there was absolutely no way around it.
The closer you get to Albuquerque the less terrifying the landscape. Have I mentioned that a flat horizon scares the crud out of me? It's an interesting psychological phenomenon. (10 pts if you can tell me what movie that last line is from.)
Ah, yes, the reason for our late start...needed to get to Boston's AFTER it opened.
We had some delicious pizza. Gluten-free, of course. :)
By the time we got to Flagstaff it was all I could do to bring the luggage into the room. No swimming that night. But we were very happy to get to watch church online. That's Babycakes there watching Jarret LeMaster lead worship...and probably wondering where the nursery cam is. ;)
They sang a really great song that epitomized our trip in worship on Wednesday night. Never Once. It's by Matt Redman. If you don't know his music, you're missing some really good stuff. Anyway, here's the song with the lyrics.
