Finally…we opened the garage door and drove out this morning at exactly 5 AM. Just as we wanted to do. We’ve been planning this trip since January, and this last month we made lists of everything we wanted to do on the trip, had to finish before we left, and where we wanted to go on the trip.
Right now we are in Santa Fe, destination for the first night. It is considerably cooler, three hours after we arrived…how nice to be cool for the first time in a month! We started with our usual egg salad in Lordsburg, NM, and took our shortcut to I-25 through Albuquerque. Dry dry desert. The only green was along the Rio Grande. There are times when you can get quite tired of brown, scrub, and heat.
We are still in area we know, and most of tomorrow’s drive will be familiar. We will see what’s going on with the fires around Colorado Springs. Not sure if we’ll explore that area around the motel…depends on how tired we are.
So now I will see just how tough it is to load pictures!
