Sunday, April 9
Highlights: Calvary Chapel Spring Valley, In-n-Out
Calvary Chapel Spring Valley
is a large church on the western edge of
Las Vegas. They had good rock and roll worship. The message was out
of Daniel 9 and how it relates to Palm Sunday. Mary found the message
interesting, but she did not like the impersonal nature of attending
a large church as strangers. We've had better experiences attending
small churches while on the road.
This was our last chance to eat at In-n-Out
and we did so. Then we
headed out to Kingman over Hoover Dam. I forgot about the traffic
delays at Hoover Dam. It's not disagreeable when you want to see
the dam, but when you just want to get from here to there it's
annoying. My covered truck got picked out for a short inspection.
We went to the Powerhouse
building in Kingman, home of the
Route 66 Museum.
We looked at all the displays that were free, but peeking
into the actual museum room, it didn't look worth the four dollar
entrance fee, even though recommended by Lonely Planet.
We ended up in Ash Fork, halfway between Kingman and Flagstaff.
The Ash Fork Inn
advertised 25 dollar rooms, but it ended up at
31 dollars for two people plus tax. Not a bad room, either, but the
towels were pretty skimpy.
