I had an awesome time in New Mexico, “The land of enchantment”. I liked how open it was, and how pretty the desert could be. I think I also just had a good time hanging out, but yeah, good times and here are a few pics from it!
Hiking in the Guadalupe Mountains… “Top of Texas”
My friend I almost sat on….
Carlsbad Cavern Spooking
HUGE Carlsbad Caverns
Offroading in the Guadalupes to Williams Ranch
New Mexico was tons of fun and I am now with family in Oklahoma. I will make a post about all my cool shotgun shooting, four wheel driving, caving, hiking and more when I can!
My friend Kelly is kinda? obsessed with the X-Files and even met Gillian Anderson (Scully) on the set of the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno”.
So I looked around for anything X-Files and didn’t find too much. Just 4 posters in the UFO museum.
I did however find a green blow up martian at the car dealership.
Street Lamps with Alien Heads
And a real alien
I went over “Raton Pass” on I-25 from Colorado into New Mexico, and I was welcomed to bright, hot and sunny New Mexico?
Well, Raton Pass is actually 7800 feet above sea level, and they forecasted another 1-3 inches of snow the day I was driving through. Crazy!
Anyways, I drove from 8am to just before 4 when I arrived in Alamogordo, NM and stayed for a hotel for the first time on this trip. It was the price of 2 nights at a nice campsite, but hey, it was gloomy, cold and wet.
The next morning I headed off to White Sands National Monument.
It got Jumped (this one is for Jill who I’ll be seeing in Greenville, SC along with Kristen)
Handstanded (with only 1 hand!)
Crazy Planes probably with bombs
And I headed out of the park at about 1215 because at 1230 the park was closed…
Official notice I got and I quote:
“On occasion, White Sands Missile Range conducts test which include flights of missiles ver the park. For this reason, and for your safety, we must evacuate the area today.
YOU MUST EVACUATE THE PARK BY 12:30PM
The Missile test is scheduled from 1300HRS. to 1400HRS.
The Visitor Center will be open for your enjoyment during the missile test. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation.
So, I headed out on my way to Roswell…
