RT '011: New Mexico

Well Day 2 was....interesting. We decided before we left on this trip that we would try to find the beauty in all the places we drive, including the desert. Today that became a challenge. But we had some good times. We drove from Flagstaff to Santa Fe today. We stopped in Grants, Katie's birthplace and where the fam lived for who knows how long, but probably too long considering it appears to be the armpit of the desert. Sorry Katie, I'm sure it was much better back in the seventies when you lived there but nothing special today. We made our way up to Santa Fe and discovered that we don't like it. Took a road trip to figure that out but it also might have been the circumstances. There were very few people and very few stores open in the plaza. Its just not as pretty as we pictured but at least we saw it. Good thing we are in a nice hotel. Tomorrow is a long driving day. We can't wait to get to green.

We haven't seen the enchanted part yet but we still have some ground to cover...

I'm telling you, once I left, Grants went down hill. It had to have been beautiful back in the day, right?

But you did the dance right? In Santa Fe?

Rachel that was one of the highlights of Santa Fe. We felt connected to Jack Kelly and we sang our hearts out and sort of did the dance in the car.
