New Mexico - could be another country!!!!

Left for a 1 week road trip in our chevy van with the 4 boys & Mum & Dad. Adam is now 12, Michael 10, Nick 8 & Nathan 3. We have planned to stay in motels. USA Motels have 2 queen beds in a room so 2 of the boys will stay with Mum& Dad & 2 in our room, which works so well. The chevy van is just great for road trips and there is so much room & you can walk through from the front to the back row. The boot is huge & is our mini kitchen for making lunches & snacks on the go

We headed south in beautiful Summer temperatures & crossed the border several hours later into New Mexico. It felt like a different country not just another state.

Love the adobe buildings & homes. It was quite dry but there are beautiful bright wild flowers. We stopped off at national park called the Pallisades, which has impressive steep cliffs. It was beautiful & green around Eagle Lake, just north of Taos.

In Tao we stayed in an adobe hotel. I enjoyed walking around the town - all low rise adobe buildings with stunning flowering boxes everywhere & little courtyards.

We loved visiting the Village - Taos Pueblo where Indians live as they have for hundreds of years. They bake bread in an outside oven & have no electricity or plumbing. It was fascinating experience.
