Road Trip, Part 7: Back to New Mexico!


Let's get this road trip finished up! After we left Green River, Utah (Crossroads of the West) we headed down through some beautiful country: Red rocks, and even some arches. 





In southern Colorado, there was a cattle herd traffic jam. I took a video because I was trying to capture the sounds of the herd, but you can mainly hear Beez and me chuckling. The cowgirl (the one with the dog) said "Thank y'all" to us for waiting for them to get situated, but we owed the thanks to her and her wonderful herd, heading down the mountain.

                  

And then, suddenly, we were heading down ourselves. From a high of 10,800 feet, we could see down into good old New Mexico. It had been a wonderful trip, but it was so good to be home again!

No matter how great the trip, it's always wonderful to be able to go home, isn't it, Clair!! I love your photos/movie and the cows! Terrific! I'm so glad you had a great trip! I also love the Chihuly glass in your header! Beautiful! Have a lovely week at home! Thanks for sharing the fun and the beauty!

The header photos is so home town for me. As I've told you, I grew up in Tacoma. The glass was added later, maybe in my 40's. The walkway is nice isn't it. Glad you liked it. Did you see what they have in the old train station.

I used to take a train very year to Portland, Oregon where we would go shopping and then come back later that day. Now, it has glass.

Small world isn't it ...

LOL! While I was waiting for my slow computer to finish loading I read Sylvia's comment and she pretty much stole everything I was going to say.

I'd be happy waiting for that cattle traffic jam too! Not something you see every day.

Always good to get home, even after such a spectacular trip. Catching up on blog reading, so will now work my way backwards through your trip!

That is some vista coming down into the home valley. Just beautiful.
