Day Six: Westward, Valley Ho!

Note: We have been set­tled in LA for about a week now. Blame inter­mit­tent inter­net access and a loco hous­ing search for the time in between posts. Here’s the thrilling con­clu­sion of our trip. The Hotel Val­ley Ho was our home for our night in Scotts­dale. I love any old hotel that’s been revamped, but […]

Day Five: Marfa, New Mexico, Arizona

Fri­day morn­ing (still in Florida), we ate some seri­ously amaz­ing quiche at Craig’s Killer Cof­fee, a semi-random cof­fee shop inside a video store. […]
