New Mexico - The Land of Enchantment

Monday morning, October 28, 2013

We came in to New Mexico yesterday afternoon and stayed at the Walmart parking lot in Gallup last night.  It's located right next to I-40 and the Santa Fe Rail System - a very busy railroad in this part of the country.  I'm lucky in that I'm not bothered by noise and slept well last night.  For those wishing more ambient silence, this would not be a good choice for boon docking.

I just made a reservation for Leisure Mountain RV Park outside of Albuquerque in Tijeras (translation= a pair of scissors!).  It's a Passport America park that honors PA for seven days.  I'm not planning to stay that long but was impressed when the man told me.  I've so far not had great luck with my PA discount; it seems that lots of parks seem to 'decide' when and how they'll accept it.

I've visited New Mexico a few times, but usually by flying in to Albuquerque and renting a car to head straight to Santa Fe to visit friends.  I'm enjoying the scenery from Floribunda.  It's a continuation of the Arizona high desert - elevation 5000'+ - so far with a change in rock color schemes ....

Once again, taking photos through the windshield!  We're welcomed to 
New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment

 Not the clearest shots!

I'm may not go to Santa Fe, as I've visited before; but I'd welcome any suggestions for the Albuquerque area.  From here I plan to follow I-40 east.
