Day 60 through 61: Kingman, AZ – Laughlin, NV – Amboy, CA
As I exited Arizona, I encountered a mountain range that was unexpected because it didn’t show up on my Google map. On second thought, it wasn’t really a mountain range I don’t think. The issue was that the city of Bullhead City, AZ was at an elevation of approx. 400 feet. And all the land surrounding it was at 3K+ feet. So the city was basically just in a valley. It was real fun entering that city, at about 25 miles of good downhill. But coming out SUCKED. Especially since I didn’t expect it.
I was so exhausted once I got out of that valley that I decided to skip visiting Las Vegas. It was a tough decision, because I really wanted to kick it in Vegas for a few days. But I just couldn’t stand the idea of another surprise valley/mountain range like that again. And besides that, at that point I could definitely start to feel my body breaking-down. I made the call to B-line to Cali and get this journey done.
