Woke up at 8am, and went to breakfast with my mom, grandma, great aunt and great uncles. On the way there, we passed some interesting rock formations (this whole area used to be an underwater sea bed), which my grandmother lovingly referred to as “a giant pile of turds”. Heh. Later in the day, I took the rental car and drove down to Tempe to meet a friend for lunch. The drive took about 45 minutes longer than expected due to the 101 freeway south being closed for about 15 miles. Joy. After a nice lunch at a restaurant that served up Southwestern cuisine, I headed on back up to Carefree, and it took like 35 minutes, which was very fast.
