The Wild West

After staying up past 4 a.m. for four days straight, we managed to get the casa packed and head out ON TIME. Did anyone hear that???? Our first day in the van included a little troubleshooting, establishing some rules about cleanliness, and lots of whoa-what-is-that out the window.

Let’s talk about west Texas for a second. Oil, cows, flat.

Okay, all done.

Some things we saw along the way:

(Shout out to the wolfpack!)

Highlight: stumbling upon the Mescalero sand dunes at sunset 
(this is why we don’t have an itinerary). 

And yes, our first honeymoon meals were breakfast tacos, Long John Silver’s, and bar & grill food in Roswell, NM. 1 pound gained, 0 aliens sighted.

    I hope you eat lots of tbell!

  2. West Texas also seems to have an abundance of road kill too. Did yall go by Marfa and check out the infamous Marfa Lights? Being that yall are probably big Young Guns fans like myself I'd recommend checking out Billy the Kid's grave in Fort Sumner, NM.

  3. Those are some awesome photos!
    p.s. I LOVE this blog! it makes me a little less sad that you're not hanging out with me at the CoPo.

  4. AWESOME PICS! Just catching up! LOVE LOVE
