The road between Phoenix and Las Vegas, U.S. 93, was a very strange experience. Since Las Vegas is only five hours from Phoenix, I had expected I-15 California-type traffic, but that was not happening. The road was quiet and rarely did we pass another car going the same way. This part, near mile-marker 98 south of Kingman, Ariz., was nicely paved, but paved for whom? - Leila Navidi.
