Nearing Santa Fe New Mexico the terrain gets a little more hilly, and very Fall like.
I put in about three hours of driving today and made it past Albuquerque so now I'm heading West on I 40 which I will be on for a while, I think I have to get off in Kingman where I will get on a smaller highway and head for Laughlin Nevada.
I pulled into the Walmart parking lot and plan on staying the night here but have to admit that staying at Walmarts on Friday or Saturday night is sometimes not the quietest place to be. In little country towns the Walmart parking lot tends to be a gathering place for the local teens who can get rather boisterous when too many of them congregate in one place.
They also seem to take great pride in removing the mufflers from their vehicles and seeing who can make the most noise while crossing the parking lot, not that I ever did that to my 57 Ford Fairlane when I was a teenager.
A brief stretch before I continue my life on the road.
It looks like when I was getting rained on the other day, the high country near Santa Fe was getting a little snow.
A Santa Fe suburb captured through the window as I cruised on by at 60 miles an hour. Their building code calls for houses that look like they're made of adobe.
