Saw parks that offered both an escape into nature and rich human history. Counted down the new year with a hot air balloon rising in downtown Albuquerque. Green chile grilled cheese melt was to die for.
Celebrated Christmas in a downtown full of lights and rich of history. Delicious Texas BBQ was consumed.
A long flat drive brought us to a huge remote park with ever-changing scenery (and weather). Got a glimpse of Big Bend's greatest treasure: an unpolluted night sky.
Tons of cactus, big and small...and very big!
