If anyone has ever lived in central Texas, just visited or vacationed here in the summer, you know Texas summers are Hot, I would say sizzling! I thought we would make it through the summer but by early July I knew we had to get to some cooler weather. So after doing some research and talking to folks we decided we would head to New Mexico. I’ll cover our trip over the next few posts, and include lots of photos, but I do want to say now before I go any further, it was a wonderful trip. The weather was wonderful (meaning cool) and we saw some beautiful sights. Both of us had never been to this part of New Mexico before so it was fun and exciting to share in the experience.
Our trip consisted of seeing Taos, Santa Fe, Los Alamos, Albuquerque and Ruidoso. You probably see one thing in common here if you have been to New Mexico – Mountains! We love mountain vistas. Not only are they beautiful, but usually mountains means cooler weather. So to start off the trip here are a few photos of our trip.
Our outbound trip, that dark sky would intimidate anyone!

Those are some of the photos, more to come. Each area and city had something special to offer. If you haven’t considered a trip to New Mexico, it’s worth putting on your list of “to do’s”. Until next time, happy travels……..
