Coming into New Mexico from Arizona via 40 is a gorgeous drive. I'm glad for that, because originally we were going to take 191 through the Painted Desert, but it was a little...dicey at the time we were through there so we decided to stick with 40, which runs next to or is part of Route 66 sometimes.
This is a pretty amazing trip guys.
Turns out, the crazy storm clouds you're seeing here were going to be a big ol' snowstorm that kept us from going all the way up to Durango, CO like we'd planned for tonight...
We are instead in Gallup, NM and will drive the rest of the way after an early start and a trip to 4 corners.
Tuesday will be Socorro and hopefully, if weather permits, Lewis and myself will hike the Quebradas.
But for now, though I'm not first driver, it's time for me to sign off.
