• Road trip

    My friend Emma moved to Boulder Junction, Nevada last year, and I could not wait to visit. Since my husband and I were overdue for a vacation, we decided to make it a road trip. We’d drive from our home on LA to Boulder Junction but leave the route open, maybe stop in Vegas for a night, check out Mojave, or look for old ghost towns

    Being from LA, we thought we could handle the heat, but July in Nevada is a whole new level. We stopped in Vegas for an hour, and then got right back on the road. We cranked the AC as far as it would go and burned that sucker all the way to Emma’s front door.

    She met us with cold beers, and we spent the rest of the vacation enjoying her company, the views, but most of all the fantastic air conditioning Manchester in her house.
