On The Road Again
We are really glad that we are staying here in Maz until the middle of April, as we have both had just about enough of the car for awhile!
The drive went smoothly, no problems at all, it was just a long, long trip. We took the same route as last year, and even stayed at some of the same hotels, so the navigating part was easy. It just seemed to take forever to get here (maybe because we were so looking forward to arriving!)
We managed to leave Winnipeg before it snowed, and skirted around the big storm that was working its way across the Dakotas and Kansas, keeping an eye on some really nasty cloud formations.
We ran out of luck in Albequergue of all places!
We had driven for 3 days, straight south, and were greeted in New Mexico by a mini-blizzard, not something we had expected!! Most of the snow had melted by early evening, but it was darned cold when we got up the next morning, and there was evidence of the storm all along the highway.
Mexico was looking better and better all the time!
