I had forgotten about those Saturday night outings when I was a kid till you mentioned them and you're so right, you sure don't want to get between mama and babies.

Have a blast and travel safe.

Oy. That last post should have said, "We'll be watching..." ....not "atching" whatever that is.

And "..."Palo Duro"...not "Palo Verde"... Sheesh.

Palo Duro and New Mexico

Sorry for the delay in providing the trip update. Following is what we did:

Day 1
Was a long 12 hour drive from Austin, TX to Palo Duro Canyon (Canyon, TX). But what a difference in temperatures ... left 100's for 80's. What a nice change for cool weather! Camped at the far end of the park for 2 nights at the Mesquite Camp Area (site # 88 based upon recommendations from others and definitely was a great choice). A few photos (photos 1 - 4) of Palo Duro Canyon attached.

Day 3
Headed to Santa Fe, NM. Short 4 hour drive in comparison to the Day 1 drive. Stayed in an RV park located in Santa Fe for 3 nights. Wow ... now we understand why many people comment about the difference between a gravel site and a paved site. This RV park has gravel sites and what a pain to keep gravel out of the Airstream. Santa Fe was great ... spent time at Bandelier Nat'l. Park (photos 5-7).

Day 6
Headed to Albuquerque, NM. Stayed in American RV Park for 2 nights. The nicest RV park that we have ever stayed in to-date. We would highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Albuquerque. Very clean, paved sites, nice ammenities and very nice staff. We visited Route 66 Casino one evening and had a great dinner and even won on the slots! A really great casino.

Day 8
Headed to Elephant Butte Lake State Park where we stayed for 2 nights. Beautiful scenery and a really nicely maintained state park. If all state parks in New Mexico are this nice and this nicely maintained ... we plan to spend more vacations there (photos 8 - 9)!

Day 10
Headed home and back to work.
