Thanksgiving week trip

I’m slowly getting caught up to present day. Here’s some pictures from our Thanksgiving week trip.

We left after work on Friday and stayed in Roswell. Didn’t see any aliens. The next morning we headed to Carlsbad Caverns. No trip would be complete without stopping on the side of the road to fix a car. Don’t put down the windows in the M-5.

Heart-shaped prickly pear. Awwww.

We were really amazed by the trail down into the cave. We just did the self-guided tour this time, but we vowed to return someday and do some guided tours of areas of the cave.

After an overnight stay in Ft. Stockton, TX, we drove WAY down south to Big Bend National Park, which was sorta neat, but we concluded that it doesn’t really compare with the other national parks.

We hiked down to this “window”.

Ken in the window. You could see all the way down to the valley way below through that gap behind him.

Ken was a bit leery of the Mexican horse who was just hanging out by the river.

There was a warm springs where there used to be an old health resort, so we put on shorts and hiked down to it. Ken thought it was quite hilarious that my only shorts were green and that I happened to be wearing a green shirt.

That was a lot of pictures, so I’m going to leave you with a cliff hanger. Rest of the trip to come at a later date.
