California Camel Travel On Tour

We’ve started the final leg of our USA road trip, with 12 nights in the state of California. We arrived in California via the High Desert Highway 62, this is the deadliest road in the state. It was the loneliest stretch of road we’ve been on so far, with no buildings or facilities for at least 50 miles. It was dark by the time we reached Palm Springs, at the end of an 11 hour journey from Sedona covering 497…

Chicago Camel Travel On Tour

The weather had changed, we woke to a red sky dawn in Niagara Falls and a forecast of rain for our 522 mile drive to Chicago. We crossed the border from Canada to USA after the Ambassador Bridge over the Detroit River, with 283 miles left to go.
