Days 5 & 6: Odds & Ends

The weather has been miserable for the past few days (rainy and grey). But once we crossed into Oklahoma, the sun finally reappeared. I’m looking forward to the next few days in the Southwest.

Here are some random sights from the past two days.

“Sparkle”:

The past few days have taken a toll on Sparkle’s exterior. I’ll have to give her a well-deserved bath when we reach Arizona. In the past two months, she’s been trouble-free for 12,000 miles.
