I have done better about not only wearing my pedometer but actually remembering to record the results. Yay for me!
February's final total was 93.8 miles. As I said before, that is rather pathetic for a month of walking.
March was better with a total of 119.38, bringing the overall total to 2211.69. That makes me happy!
I have said my farewells to Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam, left the Colorado River Basin and headed out through the desert.
At this point I am less focused on sight-seeing and more focused on making more progress toward New Zealand. The detour up through the Grand Canyon, Lake Mead, and the Dam was huge. I didn't realize how huge until I zoomed out on the map and pinpointed where I had been, where I went and where I am now. I'm glad I made that detour, though.
I passed by Vegas (didn't see the point of stopping there; not my cup of tea) and turned south and west. I walked through a portion of Joshua Tree National Park (more about that in a later post). I'm now just east of the Salton Sea. I plan to swing by The Slabs before turning more west and heading toward the ocean. I think I'll just head west from here, instead of trying to "see" LA. It's interesting with some interesting sights, I'm sure, but I think the beaches (which are really what I'm wanting to see) are probably just as pretty down toward San Diego.
