Driving to Los Angeles

We had to drive to Los Angeles last weekend to drop off a car. On the first day we drove the 800 miles (1,300 km) to Las Vegas; it takes almost exactly 12 hours. It's all on excellent highways with two lanes in each direction, so it's easy to do. Parts are beautiful - here's a photo taken on the highway in Colorado. (All photos are taken with my phone, with a little help from my wife.)
There's a spot in Utah where you climb over an ancient upthrust - the highway snakes between these rocks. It's in the middle of a 110-mile (177 km) stretch with no services or towns.
At the top there's a place where you can stop and admire the view.
I feel like everybody should do this drive at least once if they get the chance.
The road cuts through a corner of Arizona, and it's spectacular.

  4. Amazing it's that many miles. It wouldn't seem like it would take that long, but I'm sure it does.

  5. Some of these look like moon shots. It must be awesome driving through twisting roads folded within such low mountainous terrain.
