Tuesday morning after Easter we finished loading our trailer and closing up our winter home and it was time to hit the road! We pulled out of our place in Gold Canyon about 8:30 and were on our way to Holbrook, Arizona. This is a comfortable drive for us, about 180 miles.
After a one night stay, we moved on to Albuquerque for a couple of nights, then to Tucumcari, New Mexico. Downtown Tucumcari has a number of murals. This one focuses on the old Route 66, America's Mother Road, now generally following I-40.
From Tucumcari we have traveled another 116 miles to Amarillo, Texas. (Yes, I know. That is a really short drive. We prefer to travel this way.) In the Texas panhandle we see lots of grain elevators and wind turbines.
Our eventual destination for this trip is New Hampshire for a visit with our son Doug and granddaughters Rachal and Samantha. Since the trip there is more than 2600 miles from Arizona, it will take a while. We have lots of fun things to see and do along the way.
