{Highlights of US Route 93 Arizona}

For you some of the highlights along US Route 93 Arizona which we traveled up and down.
Fantastic maze of towering rock formation on the outskirts of Kingman

Incredible rock formation
We traveled from Phoenix Sky Harbour Airport in about 4 h 40 min the 483 km (300 mi) to the Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge on the Nevada border and on to the +Hyatt Place Las Vegas in Nevada. See link below, about previous post.
The US Route 93 is also called the CANAMEX CORRIDOR
Highway 93. Starting in the north, across the Canadian border at Jasper National Park in the heart of the Rocky Mountains.  BETWEEN THE CANADIAN ROCKIES AND THE RIO GRANDE ←click on link for the above and below info.
Photo of Saguaro cacti, taken from the car
Indeed, a very 'green desert' it was only too bad that we could not stop alongside the road...

Lovely sight of abundant flora and fauna

Sorry, the car window is not very clean... But don't you love the rugged area? Vast valleys and scenic vistas.
Nearing the Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge through very rugged area.
From the Nevada side, looking onto Lake Mead
Sign on the Nevada side near Lake Mead where we stopped at 18:00 o'clock for this photo.
Just a dark cloud passing but we had no rain at all.

    1. Beste Joan,
      Oh, dat is ook het éérste waar je hier zo aan moet wennen in het begin. Véél ruimte en ook persoonlijke ruimte maar ik denk dat het samen gaat. In Nederland zit je veel te veel op elkaars lip... Het is altijd nog genieten van de ongerepte natuur hier!
      Liefs,
      Mariette

  7. Ik vind dit zo leuk van Amerika, de natuur is zo anders en zo uitgestrekt. De eerste keer maakte het zo'n indruk op me, zo anders dan Europa. En je kan eindeloos door rijden over niet zo overvolle wegen. Mooi om te zien.

    1. Beste Marianne,
      Ja, inderdaad erg uitgestrekt is het. Maar de US Route 93 heeft wel een vervelende reputatie voor ongevallen. De combinatie van een tkronkelende wee-baans rijweg met veel trage(re) vrachtwagens, RVs etc. We zagen zelfs zo'n RV die in vlammen was opgegaan... dat veroorzaakte een lange fille.
      Ook jammer dat er geen stopplaatsen zijn waar je even kunt genieten van de steeds veranderende woestijn gezichten. Je moet gewoon met de stroom méé. Maar dat is ook best wel genieten van zo'n afwisselend landschap.
      Liefs,
      Mariette

  15. Hoi Mariette,

    Wat is de VS toch prachtig! Ik ben er zelf nog nooit geweest, maar het staat hoog op mijn 'to do' list. Vooral New York, Boston en New England spreken mij erg aan, maar ook de plaatsen waar Pieter en jij op jullie reis zijn geweet zijn erg mooi. Wie weet misschien komt het er ooit van :-)

    Fijne week verder Mariette!

    1. Beste Madelief,
      Ja, de VS is heel mooi en het enigste probleem is dat het zo àllemachtig groot is! Maar het blijft boeien en zeker als je veel van de natuur houd. Ja, wie weet kom je nog deze kanten uit, er zijn soms geweldige aanbiedingen en dan krijg je een mooi zetje.
      Liefs,
      Mariette

  16. Dear Mariette,
    A very scenic and beautiful trip - one of my favorite places to go on vacation is the Southwest. I have been down route 93 only once and partially at night. It looks like an amazing experience. Interesting information you have provided, too. Your photos are wonderful!
    Hugs xo

      Well, I would not have wanted to miss the view we had during the day; incredible. But you're right, the Southwest is so beautiful for a vacation!
      Photos was not easy while driving at full speed but at least we got something to share.

      We did have a blessed and safe journey all the way up north and back again. It all was worth it with such beautiful scenery. Monolith Garden consists just of those rock formations; quite a sight too!
