Moving cross-country: day one (Palm Springs - Albuquerque)

For those that don't know, I'm moving all the way across this great country of ours to Charlottesville, Virginia to start a new job producing for BackStory with the American History Guys! I'm really excited to get started, but first I've got to get there.

Right now, I'm driving out to Charlottesville on 1-40. The trip will take four or five days, depending on what I discover along the way. Day one, I crossed the Sonoran desert into the high country of Arizona and New Mexico, including a stop at Petrified Forest National Park. It's right across from the Painted Desert, and there's definitely some overlap, as you'll see if you click through the gallery below:
