Las Vegas to Phoenix

So it is Friday and time to head south to Phoenix.

I did some poor planning for this part of the trip and didn’t look at the map like I should have. I knew it was going to be a 5 hour drive along with a 1 hour time change. I left Las Vegas at about 11:30AM and did one more cache on my way out. I had planned to stop for gas in Henderson which I did. What I had not planned on or known was I would have to cross the Hoover Dam. I did not know the highway crosses the dam. This is why my poor planning. One has to go through a security check prior to crossing the dam and this slows things down. Crossing the dam is great but very very slow. People all over the place. They are currently building a new bridge and highway to bypass the driving over the dam.

I managed to arrive in Phoenix way later than I had planned. I checked into my hotel just after 5:00 PM
