trip: pt1

Woke at 4am to pack. Headed to downtown LA to feed the cats, get some film and cameras, and get harassed by the homeless. I10 to I15 to I40. Stop in Needles CA for some edible mexican food and service with a smile at Lucy's. We ate while watching freights pass by the window every few minutes, with the Colorado beyond that. Checked into the Days Inn Rte 66 in Flagstaff. Ate dinner in town at Charlie's Pub and Grill in the Historic Wheatherford Hotel. Good food, and a roving banjoist. Shared a bed with Diego (a slightly stressed out dog) while Diego's keepers, Jennifer and George, snored on their bed. Train whistles periodically preceded the rumble that shook the room through the night. Free breakfast and high speed wireless earns a thumbs up for Days Inn. Time for check-out, and a run up to the Grand Canyon before continuing on.
