The freezing temperatures froze pipes at the Cavern entry, but thankfully, the rest rooms downstairs, where it remains 56 degrees all year, were open. All along our trip to I-10 on the way to Arizona later that day we ran into several closed rest areas and gas station restrooms.
Here is one that we found outside of El Paso with working restrooms, though as you can see, it had some freezing issues as well. The Goldfield Ghost Town was definitely a highlight to the trip! We had so much fun, as I hope you can see by the video below. Again, stop by our youtube page if you want music clips, because this is just video of silly fun here!
We're safely home now and thankful for God's Providence through the entire trip. Between Michael's back troubles, freezing temperatures, rising gas prices, and numerous other things that could have turned this trip upside down, we found ourselves helped along the way by many wonderful people and dodging the worst of the weather just in time, for largely clear roads the entire trip. Back here in Colorado, we are feeling very blessed, indeed, and more confident than ever that we are being lovingly watched over.
