We drove from Nashville to LA and here is where we stopped!

I drove with my daughter across the country last week and here are our stops.

  • Nashville Hot chicken---Hattie B’s! I recommend the Medium, but we did try Hot! We did not try Shut the cluck up!
  • Walked around Franklin Tennessee a beautiful town near Nashville, bought postcards and shoes and a beautiful box to hold my postcards
  • I sent almost 200 postcards in a week! I explained how I did it in my blog post this week
  • Then we drove across Arkansas…it was very green
  • Next stop Tahlequah, Oklahoma--- we drove down a windy road, it looked pretty but in the morning the thunder was alarmingly loud
  • Went into a casino played slots (James Bond)
  • Stopped in a diner on Route 66 in El Reno, Oklahoma
  • On to a ghost town, Texola, Oklahoma Yikes
  • Stopped at the buried Cadillacs in Amarillo Tx--- Meh
  • Next stop Santa Fe, two nights to chill for the rest of the trip
  • Then old town Albuquerque
  • On the way to our next stopover, Flagstaff, we stopped at the Painted Desert, windy and beautiful, a great opening act to our next tourist stop
  • We got up at 6 the next day and arrived at the Grand Canyon by 8--- It was everything and more.
  • Next stop Oatman Arizona, a town off Rt 66. Donkeys from the gold rush days roam the streets! I was in heaven.
  • We drove to LA the next day, Mickey D’s and some good tunes.

What a trip and treasure.

We listened to a playlist in Spotify that a friend made us called Headed South.
