Side trip……

Heading south after leaving Roswell, we kept seeing signs for Carlsbad Caverns National Park.  I mentioned that next time traveling thru N M we should check that out as we had heard it was worth stopping for.  William said since we’re not in any hurry, why not now!  Since we’d already passed Carlsbad we turned around and found the local Elks Lodge, who had room for us, and stayed there for the weekend.  


Next day, Sunday, we drove out to the NP.   It’s hard to imagine driving through those desert 🌵 hills that underneath are miles of caverns with awesome stalagmites and stalactites of amazing shapes and sizes. 

The stairs at the opening of the cavern


Overall it took about three hours to walk through, took the elevator back up the top.  A very enjoyable day.  

Next morning we took off again and continued on to Texas.  Saw lots of these on the way…….. 


Had no idea there’s oil in NM.

We knew retirement was getting close. We also knew we really wanted to travel and that it was probably too expensive to keep our house and travel as we wanted. It was time to downsize. The house was sold, a motorhome is our new home and now it's time to see the country. And this is our journey.
