After building out each of our separate minivan nomad houses, Andrea and Steven bade our various farewells and rolled out onto the highway. Our first stop was to fill our big water jugs with delicious Sedona spring water from the verdant canyon.
First target was to meet with Andrea's old friend, Angel, who wanted to gift us with astrological and tarot readings. We met in a casino on that very hot hot night. In the end we decided to rent an air-conditioned casino hotel room for the night!
In the morning we set our focus on the Sekhmet Temple.
From Vegas we drove into the desert in search of the Temple of Goddess Spirituality dedicated to Sekhmet. In the 120 degree heat our various coordinations were breaking down. As Steven was scouting he was surprised by a man in a truck who offered "There's a secret swimming hole over that way."
Another kind of Temple approached us in the distance.
Area 51 Alien Center pulled us in on their tractor-beam and as a result I ate an ice cream sandwich from another world.
The sweet vibrations of green and water beckoned from the path in front of us.
We spent our first camping-in-nature night nestled in this unusual terrain near the brink of Mono Lake.
A roller-coaster highway (DIPS) pointed us through a mini-Sedona, inviting us over the mountain into California.
After much driving it was a feeling of relief to see the magnificent lake Tahoe, knowing that we would be staying in one place for a number of days, at the magical vortex A-frame cabin of my mother Carolyn.
