Back to Enchanted Trail RV Park near Albuquerque


We had an interesting drive from Carlsbad to Albuquerque today. Lots of oil drilling between Carlsbad & Roswell and then lots of ranching & agriculture past Roswell. Then it was pretty much desert & some ranching. High winds had been forecast for the Albuquerque area but they didn't happen & we were thankful for that.

This is the first time we've unhitched the trailer since we left Rockport. After we got the trailer set, we headed to Sadie's for an early green chile dinner. Yum! And we had a relaxing evening watching the Nascar Nationwide race.

We actually opened the windows in the trailer & turned off the A/C for the first time since June. Fresh air is wonderful!

More later...
