A good day of travel & sightseeing. The area is having a record heat wave, rendering the warm clothes we packed "just in case" superfluous. Left a decent (brand new) HIE in Guymon at 7:05 AM, CDT. Took a break in Boise City, where we let a Navajo use our phone - his broke & the pay phones were all dead - found out he was from Gallup after we chatted some.
On the road again, again to someplace we'd never been - Ft. Union, a NPS site. It was an adobe fort, and remains in restored ruins. It was big. Took more pictures for the contest - hope I got the right one since I haven't figured how to load pics onto the cell phone from the web.
Final stop is Las Vegas (New Mexico), where we're staying at the HIE in a king suite room. Drove around trying to get pictures for the contest, and had dinner at the El Rialto in old town - green/red chile enchiladas w/ posole. Stuffed again. Food good, service indifferent.
Tomorrow, it's on to Santa Fe, hit the museums & art galleries, sit on the plaza, and take pictures. Then we'll head for Albuquerque and a stay at Adobe Nido B&B. Today's toll - 331.4 miles (838.2 for the trip), 9:40 total travel time. Drove fast so mileage is down to 27.4 mpg.
