road trip: day 3

Today we drove from Oklahoma City, through Amarillo Texas to Albuquerque New Mexico.
I saw my very first tumble weed and hit a few with the car.

New Mexico is beautiful-- wide open skies and lots of texture to the land-- mountains, hills, mesas and buttes, gullies and ditches, micro-canyons.

Tomorrow, mid-afternoon, we should hit Sedona Arizona.

And though it's still early local time my body is telling me that it's 1am. Time for bed.


  1. omg...your first tumbleweed! NM is the home of my heart...we lived there for 5 years and plan to go back when we retire :)

    ah...betime for me too...I'm in the same time zone and it really is almost 1 am lol

    Happy traveling!

  2. sedona is unbelievable. you will love it!

  3. I love NM! (why did I move to Indiana from there???? oh yeah, school.) Watch out for those tumbleweeds! But no matter how big and frightening they may look (and some can get pretty big!) the car always wins.

  4. Welcome to my beautiful home! We are happy to have you here, even it's only for a few hours. (I can't believe you're just a few hundred miles north of me right now...sigh ;o)
