Images of a roadtrip through the Arizona Desert

Story, with pictures, of a roadtrip driving through the big Arizona desert. Dunes, desert and nice cacti in sight.

Quick story with photos of a roadtrip through the Arizona desert, dunes and saguaros in sight.

From nowhere to nowhere

Well, of course, we had an origin and a destination, but that’s not what’s important in this story. The important thing in this story is to tell you what we saw in the middle. That enigmatic nothingness of Arizona desert and of having a flat and straight road ahead for this roadtrip. The highways of the United States.

After crossing the border from Mexico to the USA, we left California, via interstate 8, we crossed into the state of Arizona, passed through Yuma, Dateland (the land of the date) and then took the 10 south, all to reach Nogales. But that didn’t matter.

What mattered were the cacti and the dunes that we saw along the way.

Here we show you our Roadtrip through the Arizona desert.
