Late start Thanksgiving day. Had a grande Mexican meal the night before and enough cervesa to sleep very soundly. Got into Phoenix and had to deal with a place to stealth camp. Eluded park rangers and set up on a beautiful soccer field after dark. 11pm awoken by industrial mega sized sprinklers. WTH. Glad to get out of Phoenix next day
