Dear Wanda -
We are out in the desert not far from Winslow where we'll have breakfast. Yesterday along between Barstow and Needles it was good and hot and I felt a lot better. There has been hardly any dust so we keep our windows open all day and I breathe good dry air. Saw snow on the San Francisco peaks this morning. My fellow passengers spend most of their time groaning about the heat - poor thing! Tell Mama I saw a "leopard."
Love to all
