We had a full day open in Kirtland and we had been told about a wonderful museum in Farmington. Honestly the day was so glorious there was no way I wanted to be inside. Again a reason to come back to an area. I had read about the Animas River... Continue reading

I agree but again am glad that this lifestyle is not for everyone. : )

A trip to Northern New Mexico wouldn't be complete for me without a day at Ojo Caliente Spa. It is about a 45 minute drive from Pojoaque and the scenery is so pretty. Once we enter this tree-lined drive we know we are near. By now if your windows are... Continue reading

Yes, I love unusual or old buildings and often I find myself curious about who lived there when or who lives there now. So many interesting things to see on our travels.
"All the earth colours of the painter's palette are out there in the many miles of badlands... "(Georgia O'Keeffe) If you look you can find all those colors in this land. We stopped for a snack at a picnic table overlooking Abiquiú Lake. And looking way out there is Pedernal,... Continue reading

After leaving Albuquerque we only went about 80 miles north to Pojoaque. We have stayed in the area a couple times before because it is a great starting point for so many things to do near there. Our first trip was to Georgia O'Keeffe country. We took this road through... Continue reading

There is so much more to the Gathering of Nations than the dancing. So much more than the Drumming. So much more than the Singing. So much more than the amazing, colorful costumes. It is an event where Native people can come together each year to celebrate and share culture,... Continue reading

We had driven by this giant owl one day on our way to meet Joyce and Paul at La Salita for lunch. The food at La Salita was really good. Yummy Chile Rellenos and OOOOh the Sopapillas. But this giant owl was too tempting to not go to lunch another... Continue reading

We have been enjoying our time in Albuquerque. Each night brings another sunset. Some are soft and quiet. Others make you sit up and pay attention. Each day we find new places to go and new things to do. I love unusual and quirky things and who wouldn't love a... Continue reading

We enjoy staying at Isleta Lakes RV Park. It feels remote but is easy to get to anywhere because I25 is nearby. We like the security, the good internet, and Direct TV. There is always something going on around the lakes. Lots of fishing, picnicking, and even weddings. We have... Continue reading

We said good-bye to our family and feathered friends and left Mesa on a bright, sunshiny morning. Kitty was in his carrier and let us know of his displeasure at being cooped up for a brief time and then gave up and went to sleep. We are on our way... Continue reading

Not long and we will be rolling down the highway. We arrived here at Good Life Resort on September 12, 2016. Wow, 6 1/2 months in the same spot. No wonder we are ready to get our eyes on the road. We have had good times with the grandchildren. I... Continue reading

Another trip to see the Salt River horses. This time he didn't forget his phone or the camera. All of the wonderful rainfall Arizona has been blessed with this winter has given the horses lots of good green grass to graze on. It was announced last week that there has... Continue reading

Enjoy the ride. I hope it is a good experience. San Antonio is one of our favorite cities.
Another blazing blue sky desert day called us to venture out to see what we could see. There is water in the desert and it gleams in the sun. This is the Salt River. It is the largest tributary of the Gila River. It is beautiful out here. The colors... Continue reading

2016 has been a great year for us. Even if we didn't spend the holidays in a place filled with wintry beauty like this. Our experience with snow this year was at Crater Lake in June. Our winter has consisted of some rain that has made the flowers bloom happily.... Continue reading
