Driving into and through New Mexico, we were ecstatic to see the snow all over the ground and in the mountains.
We were able to enjoy the snow for a few days…
…and hiked to Church Rock in it!
We enjoyed some authentic Mexican Food in Gallup.
And, learned about the Navajo Code Talkers while in town.
Snow is fun to play in and look at, it’s not a favorite of ours to drive in. So we (once again) changed our plans and decided to leave beautiful New Mexico a couple days early. We drove all the way across Arizona in one day to run from a major storm.
That didn’t prevent us from visiting a few spots though.
We stopped by the Petrified Forest National Park, and while we couldn’t get in, it was on the way, so we took a chance.
Visited Wigwam Hotel, inspiration for the movie “Cars.”
Stopped at a couple Harley Dealerships.
After a longer than normal driving day, we got to our campground for the next couple days, got some laundry done, and let the kids play in the little area behind our site!
Until next time…
