Day Six Recap

Okay, confession time. We aren’t just driving Route 66 on this trip. Part of the reason we hauled boogie through states we’re familiar with, like Illinois and Missouri, was to squeeze in a departure from the Route to visit the Grand Canyon. After all, when you’re planning to spend eight days in a car, a two-hour detour is no big deal. But the Grand Canyon? Yeah. That’s a big deal.

We did still have time for an act of kindness today—leaving treats and a scented candle for housekeeping at the Wigwam Motel. Man, that was a blast. And we took a pit stop in Winslow, Arizona to see a certain street corner. During both our sightseeing stops in Winslow and at the Grand Canyon, we had fun taking photos of strangers for them, and they took photos for us. Everyday kindnesses, for sure, but definitely fitting with our kindness trek.

By this time tomorrow, we’ll be in California!
