Top of the Mornin' To Ya!

Last night we stayed in Van Buren, Arkansas. We made sure to get off the road early enough to take advantage of the indoor pool at the hotel we were staying at. Definitely worth it! Not only did I sleep better last night but I also feel a little bit better. There’s something about road food and lack of exercise that just makes you feel blah. But I’m definitely feeling a little better this morning. Plus we had a relatively decent breakfast at our Hampton Inn.

Today we are pushing west heading as close as we can get to Albuquerque, New Mexico. We heard that the roads in Oklahoma weren’t the best, but so far they seem okay. Below are some photos from the drive yesterday.

In Arkansas we came across a big storm. Here are the clouds before we got to the storm.

We decided to storm chase a bit and here is the result. This was still outside the storm and before we entered the flash flood area.
