Today marked the sixth day of the race and took us out of the New Mexico heat and way up to Flagstaff, AZ.
The morning took us out of Gallup and on to part of Route 66. It was a solid morning with lots of long timed speed runs and speed changes over far and winding roads.
Between our morning run and lunch stop we drove through the Painted Desert and Petrified Forrest. This offered some amazing views and a few photo opportunities.
On the way to Winslow, AZ, we even found a car in need of serious restoration work!
Lunch in Winslow gave us a break from the mid-day heat. We reloaded on water before stopping at the most famous corner in Winslow, AZ.
The afternoon took us up out of the heat towards Flagstaff. We were again treated to steady speed roads, but this time there was a section of low speed, stop, and turn instructions to mix it up.
As we entered the tree line, we were again blessed with some stellar views and even a controlled burn site, which add some excitement!
When we rolled into Flagstaff, AZ we were awarded another ACE! Our hard work paid off today!
Tonight we rest in Flagstaff, AZ and prepare for the long, hot day that tomorrow will be.
Chat again in Lake Havasu, AZ.
