Our time hiking with Eric and Tina was amazing, but far too short. Weather reports were indicating a huge storm with heavy winds and snow headed right for our path back Utah. That meant cutting our hike short and hitting the road as soon as we could. With about an hour of towing experience under our belt, it was time to head home. We left Picacho Peak State Park at 11 a.m.
Around noon we were back in Phoenix. What a beautiful city, but there was a bunch of lingering smog in the valley. It was a beautiful drive up towards Vegas, with the saguaro cacti everywhere. We love the southwest.
The next few hours were uneventful. Fred the Van towed the Airstream like a champ. As we came within an hour of Vegas, the winds starting picking up bad. We pulled over to re-assess our options. We considered staying outside of Vegas for the night, but we were worried that we wouldn’t be able to make it back to Utah through the storm.
