Tuesday, 22 February, 2011 – Bellflower to Tucson

Today was an essential driving day We took Interstate 10 towards Phoenix but took the 89 Phoenix by-pass (new to us and to Eunice’s SatNav system).

We made just the one stop, S2250, off I10 mainly for a comfort break and leg stretch, but stayed long enough to capture two different Cylindropuntia species (C. bigelovii and C. kleinia?) and Fouqueria splendens.

It was dark by the time we rolled into Tucson, found the usual Motel 6 and arrived at the Silver Saddle for another great steak, just in time for their 9:30 closing
