Alaska’s Travel Diary

Thursday, 30 Aug 2007

Map8:06 p.m. and just out of the shower to find my traveling companion asleep under the covers. I am not far behind as I have been doing all the driving. Today we had a nice drive from Cortez, CO to Albuquerque, NM where we ate at one of our favorite Mexican food restaurants "El Pinto". After gassing up, I dropped Gwynne off at Sandia Casino while I shopped in Old Town. I found a native selling his wares on the sidewalk....guord art...and bought a pair of earrings. I spent about 1 1/2 hours shopping, but it was hot. Gwynne called for me to pick her up (30 minutes away), and I was on my way anyway, so......we headed south where we are staying now.....Socorro, NM at a Best Western. Prior to this trip, my experiences w/ BW have not been good, but I must say, the past three nights have been pleasant experiences.
The plan is to hit the road again in the a.m., probably around 9, and head to Alpine to stay at the Burling House. It has been a great, relaxing, memorable trip.
Thanks to all of you for keeping up with our wild tales and adventures.
