Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
Spring break trip continues.
This is a quick picture heavy post from a random road trip to New Mexico, USA. Taken in March 2016. Read more about this trip here and the Roswell adventure here.
And there is yet MORE here.
Let me stress one more time..
On this adventure I went to New Mexico
which is a state in the USA. NOT THE COUNTRY MEXICO.
I actually haven't been to MEXICO the country in a few years. I think my last trip was 2011 or 2012 so no blog post. #Sorry
New Mexico is usually considered one of the Mountain States in the United States. It is the fifth biggest state, but it is the sixth-least densely populated of the 50 United States. (According to WIKI) It touches Texas, but it is still an all day drive from my part of Texas to the border. (See the map.)
As we got closer to New Mexico the area became flatter and flatter. You could see for a very long way and the horizon was beautiful as the sun slowly set. We watched the colors change and dusk seemed to last forever. It was really cool to be tooling down the highway with very little traffic. We used the Waze app and it directed us off the main roads and through cool little towns.
Love the sunset colors!
We stayed one night In Rowell, which is famous for the UFO crash and aliens. Click here to read that post.
Meanwhile in Roswell...
If you have never heard of Rosewell:
"Roswell is a city in New Mexico. It is the county seat of Chaves County in the southeastern quarter of the state of New Mexico, United States. As of the 2010 census it had a population of 48,411,making it the fifth-largest city in New Mexico.
Roswell is most popularly known for having its name attached to what is now called the 1947 Roswell UFO incident, though the crash site of the alleged UFO was some 75 miles (121 km) from Roswell and closer to Corona. The investigation and debris recovery was handled by the local Roswell Army Air Field." from WIKI read the rest here.
This was my second visit. We spent the night here and then explored the next day. I love the fact the town has embraced all the UFO craziness and has a sense of humor. Read the full post here.
New Mexico is famous for other things besides Roswell and the Aliens. Native American Art and Spanish / Mexican style items as well as handcrafted jewelry made in New Mexico are very sought after.
There was a fire burning as we drove into Albuquerque. #Yikes!
I really liked the town. I'm not sure if I had ever been there before, if so it was years and years ago. I stayed a few days and then flew back to Austin. Overall it was a fun road trip and wonderful to get away. I enjoyed revisiting Roswell and seeing some new stuff, too.
Now I need to post on my other big trip, plus get the next reservations in order for the April adventure.
See you at the airport!
