Today we started in Holbrook, AZ, and ended in Tucumcari, NM. The only “notable” events were crossing into New Mexico and therefore, losing an hour with the change to Mountain Time. Very exciting.
Just east of Holbrook, Interstate 40 passes through the Petrified Forest National Park. Of course, you can’t really see anything from the highway but, fortunately, we visited the park back in 2013.
Day 2 miles driven was about 430. This includes 20 miles driven in an ill-advised detour attempting to bypass a stretch of I-40 with construction in progress. Didn’t work out.
