Carlsbad to Truth or Consequences.

Yesterday we drove from Carlsbad, NM to Truth or Consequences, NM.  The Best Man and I stopped at The White Sands National Monument along the way.  We were too hot and hungry to enjoy it much.  We had a picnic in the car then continued our drive.  We enjoyed the hot springs several times during our stay.  The best was soaking in the tub at night while star gazing.  I'm still not used to being able to clearly see the Milky Way.  It's breath taking.  After soaking this morning we got on the road to Arizona.  On the way we stopped to see The Very Large Array or VLA as it's called.  It was crazy to see just how big these satelites are and read about all the research going on in the area.

We stopped on a corner in Winslow, AZ for some pictures, then made our way just to Flagstaff.  Thankfully on the way here I spied a sign for a KOA, so we ended up here instead of a hotel (money saved = smores!). The weather has definitely cooled off quite a bit.  The Best Man and I are both excited to be going to sleep when it's cold instead of blazing hot.  On the road again tomorrow to Durango, CO for a few days.
