September Road Trip – Arizona (September 19, 2017)

Mining stocks are stressful… and so is investing in general… So, sometimes it’s best to just get away for a bit and do something else.

Recently, on a whim, the family and I decided to take a road trip down to Arizona and explore the Southwestern part of the United States…


Here’s what I’ve seen over the last three days…


Four years ago when I first got into the whole electric vehicle revolution, there were hardly any charging stations…

Saw this at the gas station at one of the exits off of Highway 5… Pretty cool (charging stations should be EVERYWHERE these days).

First “real” stop, Kingman, AZ. EconoLodge, yes, I am a cheap guy…

Rise and shine early Monday morning for some El Paraiso Tacos and Burgers.

Well, no burgers…

But some delicious tacos (Al pastor and carne asada)… Taco Tueday’s special are $1.00/each$1.50/each is regular price (yes we happily decided to come back on Tuesday for some more).

And rice plate… This place was LEGIT! Highly recommended, and the owner is a cool guy, very friendly.

On the way to see the Grand Canyon… Skywalk and Eagle Point side.

Joshua Tree.

First look.

Living on the edge! Crazy, crazy…

Let’s kick some rocks…

Speaking of mining…

And gold…

Guano Point…

Not so crowded on a Monday…

Looking down…

Arriving in Sedona on Tuesday afternoon…

Walking to the trail…

The iconic Bell Rock.

Nice hike, cool breeze.

Great view…


That’s all for now…


This was my first trip to the Grand Canyon and second time in Sedona.


Still lots more to see…


Fight On!

This brings back memories! Ten years ago, when I was still young/25 ;), I hired a car with three fellow backpackers and did a road trip from Vegas-Flagstaff-Grand Canyon. An amazing experience.. Have fun mate, and keep exploring..
