Travel Day Two
The Road To Enchantment
Well, don't let the title of this post fool you. Grandma J and Co. had a whole lot of obstacles to keep them from occupied.
We can start with early morning rain on the I40 heading west in Oklahoma City. Grandma J especially loved all those funny grooves in the road. Every state has their own thing for run-off and traction.
And what's a long road trip without lots of fog?
Look at the red dirt! God knew that the Chickasaw Indians loved to
But would you looky here? We are back in Texas? Who woulda thought after driving a couple hundred miles Grandma J would be on her way to Amarillo!
This Enchantment goes on and on forever!
Grandma J took a turn north on the I25 headed towards Las Vegas, New Mexico to spend the night at The Historical Plaza Hotel.
After settling in, Grandma J decided to trek on up the road to find the town of LeDoux....settled by and named after Antoine LeDoux, brother of Andre, her great-great grandfather.
She knew she wouldn't find much, because.....hello, she did her homework! click on photos to enlarge.
LeDoux is on the Santa Fe Trail, and up in the mountains on the way to Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Grandma J found the LeDoux Fire Station. She was satisfied.
And, because it was after 7 pm, and the sun was setting, she decided to travel the 30 miles of narrow unlit roads back to Las Vegas and have dinner.
After dinner, Grandma J tucked Phil and Crusty in. Phil was a bit tiffed that Grandma J let Crusty have the remote for the night.
This morning, Grandma J is headed to Albuquerque to meet up with one of her blogger commentors. That's right, she's meeting Hollywood....and yes she is more than excited! Hollywood doesn't have a blog yet, but she's thinking about it.
