Many Roads

With the lack of wifi at the cabin where we stayedt in Durango, I decided to keep all my notes old style. That’s right, I hand wrote them all in a notebook. Plus if I didn’t write them down it’s likely I’d forget some of the smaller details.  I’ll divide it up into parts and events to post over the next few weeks along with pictures (I’m still sorting through the photos). I’ve got some reviews on places to stay and eat, some cool things to see and do, and maybe a little bit of advice. Total mileage was about 2,750 miles or 4,425 kilometers. About half of those miles were just getting out and  back into Texas. A quick run down, from home we traveled to El Paso, TX. Then Albuquerque by way of the White Sands National Park and Valley of Fires State Park. Next day onto Durango, CO with a stop in Aztec, NM at the Aztec Ruins. A trip over the mountains into Silverton, CO. Leaving Durango and heading to Mesa Verde National Park, NM then onto Tuba City, AZ (which was on Navajo Nation and has confusing time zones). Into the Grand Canyon, down into Flagstaff, AZ (passed the corner in Winslow, AZ) and back into Albuquerque, NM. Leaving New Mexico for Texas and an indoor pool in Abilene, TX (anything to avoid Fort Stockton, TX). And finally back home to one very happy puppy and my own bed. More to come….
