Umatilla! I had to look that one up on the map!

But that means another A destination. We could do Aztec, New Mexico! Aztec is home to (among other things) Aztec Ruins National Monument, a Chaco outlier. Worth a visit!

Coshocton, Ohio

This was one of my favorite stops on the 1999 WBCCI/Vintage Airstream Club Wagon Wheels Caravan. Coshocton is home to Roscoe Village a restored Canal Village along the Ohio and Erie Canal System.

Ok, ok, an N. How about Nenahnezad, New Mexico. A mouthful, and it should probably be written NiinahnÝzaad since it's a Navajo community near Fruitland between Farmington and Shiprock.

I'll bet a buck that this town shows up in one of the Ella Clah novels, maybe even in one of Hillerman's!

Looks like we got two N destinations at once! Ok, let's do one more N, and then it's onward!

How about Navajo, New Mexico. Ah, guess what tribe lives there? Actually, there's a bit of a claim to fame: It is the most Navajo of any town in the US with 95% of residents of Navajo ancestry.

Navajo is located pretty much where you'd expect: Near the NM-AZ border north of the Window Rock area.

Whoa, another "N" - I like, Nagezzi, New Mexico. Its the "gateway" to Chaco Canyon National Historic Park from the US550. Getting to Chaco over the improved dirt road (about 13miles) is worth the effort.

Today the massive buildings of the ancestral Pueblo peoples still testify to the organizational and engineering abilities not seen anywhere else in the American Southwest. For a deeper contact with the canyon that was central to thousands of people between 850 and 1250 A.D., go to and explore Chaco through guided tours, hiking & biking trails, evening campfire talks, and night sky programs.

Egads, now we're all mixed here! Ok, let the new destination be either an I (Nageezi) or an O (Navajo), but not both!

Illiopolis, Illinois

Most tourists will probably note the ruins of the Sangamon Ordnance Plant, closed following World War II, that lie west of Illiopolis. The town lies in the greater Springfield metropolitan area along old US 36.

Ah, an S could be for Santa Rosa, New Mexico. Santa Rosa is located on I40 and was a stop-over for old Route 66, famous enough that John Ford chose to shoot a scene there for his 1940 film of Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath. Prior to 1937, Route 66 turned northwest near Santa Rosa and headed for Santa Fe. (From there, the pre-1937 route went south through Albuquerque to Los Lunas, and then west and northwest.)

Aroma Park, Illinois

A picturesque community along the Kankakee River opposite the mouth of the Iroquois River. The Aroma Park Road provides a scenic relaxing afternoon drive . . .

Oh, a K. Always tough because the only currently inhabited K-town I know in New Mexico is Kirtland, but I think it's been used. So I have to consult my handy-dandy favorite ghost-town resource, ghosttowns.com. First came up with one that must really be a ghost, because even the page came up blank.

But how about Kelly, New Mexico. If you've ever driven out to the VLA near Socorro, then you probably drove through quaint Magdalena. Off to your left as you travel west through Magdalena is a mountain, and Kelly appears to have been either up on that mountain or just on the other side to the south. What's surprising is that nearly 3000 people lived there at one time. (That's three times larger than Angel Fire!)

Oh, and H could be for Hillsboro, New Mexico. It's an almost-a-ghosttown since a small number of souls still live there, but it's gold mining days are done with. Lots of photographers go there, though!

We love Hillsboro - great lunch spot on the back road to Silver City.

How about "Old Horse Springs" New Mexico? - a wide spot in the road on Hwy 12 west of Socorro... Near the great Plains of St. Augustine.

;-)
