Wonderful Failure

Well, we failed! Our goal was to make it to The Grand Canyon and we only made it as far as Santa Fe, NM. We were just having too much fun and spending too much time at the fun stops along the way. Plus, our journey started in Central Florida so, we had to drive quite a distance just to reach Route 66 in Oklahoma City.

We didn’t have a travel schedule for a reason. I sure didn’t want to be gone for 15 days and return absolutely exhausted and feeling like we all we did was drive.

Mission accomplished! We meandered off and on Route 66, saw some fun sites, ate amazing food, and had an overall fun and relaxing trip. We will cover Arizona and Colorado on the next trip. 

We are currently making our way back east to Alabama. Since I don’t have fun vacation pics to show on our trip back, I figured I would share the goofy Daisy Mae. She sure is a good traveler and she absolutely loves the Motorhome.

Oh, and we are headed to our next “first” adventure in Alabama. More on that next week…

Santa Fe, NM


Santa Fe is absolutely beautiful! The purple mountains, pink sky, and colorful wild flowers, all frame the beautiful Adobe buildings and red soil.

But the food…HOLY COW! If you could bottle the smell of roasted green chilis you would be a millionaire! Maybe I could just roast a few each week… Never mind!

We now have a full sack of roasted green Chilis and 100 Tamales from Posas to put in our freezer. That may last about 6 months. 

These roasters were awesome and they have 10 of them set up in a Big Lots parking lot. That’s our batch of Hatch roasting right there!!

Here are some more fun pics of our visit

The sights of Route 66

Next stop: Santa Fe, NMThe last two days have been filled with all of the strange and entertaining roadside “must sees” of Route 66. 

It seems that the goal was to display “the biggest” or “the tallest” or… There was clearly no concern as to what the biggest or tallest novelty was. Cowboy, Ox, Shoe, Tower…

Speaking of towers, check out this gem. All 4 legs are the same length but the center water pipe it too tall. It was too costly to fix so they just left it that way.

This cross stands 190 ft tall and is believed to be the largest in the Western Hemisphere. It includes beautiful night time lighting and all of the stations of the cross below.

The closer we get to New Mexico, the more creative the “art”.
