Happy Mother’s Day to our Moms! We missed being with both of them today, but they were well taken care of by the rest of the families!
Here’s my Mom with the flowers that we sent:
Not only is it Mother’s Day today, but Tom and I are also celebrating our birthdays! Since we would be travelling today, I made a nice spaghetti dinner yesterday, and we had birthday cake.
So today we moved . . . through Albuquerque on I-40 and I-25, to MN550. What a great road! We were so glad that we followed the recommendations we had gotten to take this road! It was 4 lanes, divided, and as smooth as can be!
It also travels through some of the most beautiful scenery we have scene on a travel day! I was going crazy – having to drive and not being able to take pictures!
So, I made Bryce put away his DVD player and get out my camera!
He got some pretty good shots!
As we got closer to Colorado, we started seeing snow-capped mountains in the distance!
There also started to be more grass and trees, and not as much desert!
Then, we were leaving New Mexico and entering Colorado!
We were beginning to wonder if we would be turning before we got to those mountains, or travelling over them!!
We made the turn on Colorado Hwy 160, and headed west towards Mancos. Following the directions, it was an easy drive to the campground where we’ll be spending the next couple of months!
We have a nice, big site, and those mountains are still right there behind us! We’re surrounded by open ranchland, too . . . we think it’s going to be a beautiful place to spend much of the summer!
Now that we’re settled in, I’ll get caught up on those Albuquerque posts!
