Yes, we are still in New Mexico. We had enough fun in eastern New Mexico. Nice lakes but a constant spring wind made for wetter kayak rides unless we caught the wind just right. So we re-routed to Albuquerque. The first picture is chapel at Fort Stanton, the second picture is Heron Lake.
Nothing special about our location except that my brother Joe, and his wife Lindsey live there. We spent many days with them, including Easter. Their daughter Pheobe asked a funny question. How long does it take to go from Alamogordo to Albuquerque? To which my response was “about two and a half weeks”. We travel so slow. We move about once a week and usually for a shorter distance than my commute to work was.
Elliott, Joe’s and Lindsey’s son (picture) just started driving and is starting to think about college. Got to attend one of his baseball games. It was a win, Last week we moved out of the city. Costco and Walmart only have appeal for a little while. Cochiti Lake, on the Rio Grande River between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, had a real nice campground overlooked the brownest lake I have ever seen. Water is flowing through so fast, the mud doesn’t have time to settle.
Today we are headed north of Santa Fe and stopping at a few more lakes my brother recommended. After about two weeks off the grid, we will cross Taos headed east. Then north to Colorado.
How far is Taos from Albuquerque? About three weeks.
So far so good, Scott and Tami
