Day one of the road trip. We passed through Houston just as rush hour was beginning. Two things that make my mom cringe on road trips: driving through big cities with multiple junctions and merges, and driving bumper to bumper on a busy interstate.
We took the southern route from Mississippi to Arizona to bypass the over stimulating Dallas area– but there was no way around Houston’s chaos. I encouraged Mom to snap photos in order to discourage her from hyperventilating.
