Wow…all I can say is the drive this morning was amazing. Every day we wake up with anticipation of what lay ahead and the days never seem to disappoint. Today was no different. The ride down I-40 from the western Texas Panhandle into New Mexico was truly inspiring. The landscape was ever changing. Around every hill and curve the land unfolded before our eyes. Browns and greens and every shade came to life right before our eyes; not to mention the blue sky. New Mexico is the “Land of Enchantment” and that is the truth.
We took a couple of breaks along our 200 mile journey today just to take it all in. The first was at Russell’s Truck Stop. What a cool place; part car and culture museum, part restaurant, part grocery store and part gas station. It was where I found my PB and J sandwich!! One of the best surprises of the day was found at a New Mexico rest area. The best burrito we have ever had; big and fat and packed with goodness!! Also right behind the rest area was an awesome view of the land beyond.
As we rolled into our RV Park for the night (RV Park and casino) we were met with super cool park hosts that escorted us to our site. After we settled in we took a walk over to the casino and proceeded to loose $50. We need our Donna!! I think we set a record on how quick that can be done…LOL
After the loss we came back and made fajitas on the Blackstone and watched some paramotors flying just outside of the RV park.
