May 30, 2010 - Acoma Pueblo

The museum was kinda a bust. Some beautiful pottery and one display of the church on the mesa being restored - but T-shirts were $29. They were beautiful but not for that price. Cameras weren't allowed - even on the mountain 2 miles away. Or they were allowed IF you paid for a permit.As you can see - I don't play nice with rules. The tour of the mesa is well worth the money, but it hasn't changed in 1,000 years so I'm sure it hasn't changed since we went there 5 years ago. The tours were all booked for about 3 hours so we would have had to...

Summer 2010 Travels

May 29, 2010 - Plans made in Jell-o

In his blog this morning, Nick, the editor of the Gypsy Journal, talked about Rvers plans being made in Jell-o. We had already thought of that last night. Instead of going 136 miles from McHood Lake to Gallup and then 300+ to Tucumcari, as we planned – why don’t we go 200 miles to Acoma and then 200 more to Tucumcari. So I dragged out the old Streets & Trips mapping program – and sure enough there was a full hook-up RV park next to a casino for only $15 a night. About 5 years ago we stayed in Grants, NM, for a week and did some sight...

Summer 2010 Travels

Dec 24, 2009 - We Thought We Left Wisconsin

We awoke this morning to a view we really did not want to see ever again. The storm last night was so strong that it rocked the RV like we were on a boat. We are trying to get out of here around noon when the weather clears a bit. The roads must still be somewhat bad as none of the semis have left yet this morning and I'm sure some of them do want to make it home for Christmas. The nice thing about staying at a Flying J is not only do they have a buffet inside but if we would run out of propane for the furnace, gas for the generator or...

Following The Sun

Apr 6, 2009 - Acoma Pueblo

We planned on Monday to drive to Albuquerque and west to Acoma Pueblo. The road off the Interstate was sparsely signed, but after 15 miles of no traffic and few signs, the Sky City Cultural Center appeared - a modern, beautiful building with a parking lot full of tourists, and a shuttle bus to the pueblo at the top of the mesa for a guided tour! It was spectacular - a living pueblo (as Taos also is) with beautiful traditional pottery for sale and freshly made fry bread to eat (yummy). After a late lunch and a nap in the RV, we drove rapidly...

Sep 6, 2008 - Acoma

Our 2nd day on the road took us to Acoma Pueblo and Sky City. The views were stunning, the tour educational, and the day warm and sunny. Acoma gave us insight into ancient peoples past lives as well as the present Pueblo workings. The descent down the stairs was well worth the time.

SW Road Trip 2008

May 5, 2008 - Acoma, NM

We are kind of back tracking now. We arrived at the Acoma Tribe RV park where we stayed a month ago. Tomorrow we head for Flaqstaff. One thing I forgot to mention last night was when we got to Lebanon, Ok as we were headed to our camp site we were greeted by two snakes. One was about a 2.5ft rattle snake the other about 5ft in lentht is of an unknown type. Both were dead in the middle of the road. I am not to concerned about snakes. There are only two types I do not like - live ones and dead ones. We had a quiet day on the road and are...

Dec 27, 2007 - Acoma ( Sky City ) Pueblo

Shortly after 9:00 AM Tom, Robert's brother, arrived at the trailer and we jumped in the truck and headed west to Acoma. It was a Celebration Day at the Pueblo and we were hoping to take in the ceremonial dances. The drive into the Visitor Center passed through some very spectacular countryside. We purchased tickets for the Pueblo tour, and soon got on the bus for the ride to the top of the mesa and the Pueblo. It was very cold and breezy at the top of the mesa, after a very interesting tour we gathered around a campfire with some of the...

Albuquerque Winter

Nov 10, 2007 - Into New Mexico we go!

Arizona was a blast! The weather was perfect...sunny and warm during the day and cool at night. We stayed on the Verde River and met a few locals. John was our favorite! He was a riot and made dinner for us almost every night we were there. He showed us around town and even took us fishing. Thanks John! We could have easily stayed much longer but it was time to move along...to New Mexico! We took I-40 into New Mexico and found a little RV park by the Sky City Casino on the Acoma Pueblo Indian Reservation. Seems like a nice place for the night!

Oct 8, 2007 - Balloons over our Coach and Visit to Sky City

Oct. 8, 2007 Ok, dawn patrol was fun, but after 2 days of getting up at 5am, we decided we could sleep in on Monday. So we did. As it turned out, we still got a wonderful show from our coach. I woke up about 7am thinking that I heard something outside. Sure enough, there were balloons rising from the field and floating right over our coach! We got tons of pictures from the coach. We were scheduled to go to the Acoma Sky City casino on a 10:30 bus. The trip was about a 1 hour 20 minute bus ride to the casino, so we spent the time visiting...

Sep 19, 2007 - Acoma and Laguna Pueblos

Drove West on the old Route 66 to Acoma Pueblo to Sky City on a guided tour. Amazing history of these resilient people. They are very kind and have a great sense of humour. Southwestern Lunch and then off to Laguna Pueblo for the St. Stephens feast day with native dancing and lots of vendors. A wonderful day with fluffy clouds but a lng day. Wonderful to be back at the B&B with a picnic, wine and the sound of crickets..
