We had some grand plans for today, but all of the driving over the last week has worn us out pretty thoroughly! We slept in and set off for Phoenix in the mid morning, stopping for some outlet shopping (Joshua is winning in the shopping stakes) and to admire the views Arizona has to offer. Around half an hour out of Phoenix the landscape changed, with tall saguaro cactus popping up everywhere. Some of them are as big as trees, much taller than we expected. Phoenix is not what we thought it would be at all, and unfortunately it's been a little disappointing, with not a great deal to see and not the safest feeling of places. We'll be carrying on early again tomorrow morning to the next part of our adventure!
