Homeward Bound

Sad but true folks, we are on our way home tonight. We visited Chaco Canyon yesterday and hiked around that area for a while. (I just realized the above photo is not from Chaco but from Aztec; oh well) It was very interesting and coupled with a book Capt. Jack bought about the Ancient People of this area, it made for some thoughtful reflections at times. I'll write a bit more about that when I get home but for now just a quick post to let everybody know what's going on.

We are worn out basically and ready to go home. I'm tired and tired of my nose bleeding for the past two weeks. Apparently this drastic an altitude change has affected my system quite a lot. It has not been drastic nose bleeds but it's gross and I won't say any more. The dry air has wrecked havoc with many things let's just say. I feel like those little lizards I have seen in the desert out here! lol!
Anyway, we are on our way back while things are good and before we start getting on each others nerves bad. And while we still have some money. We are both out of work too, you know. I miss my shady valley with it's clear running creek and the cool mornings I know are waiting for me there.
So, we are in Lubbock, Texas tonight and are going to try to hit Louisiana by sleep time tomorrow. Whether this is possible or not I don't know but we are going to hoof it. Therefore, I probably will not post again until we arrive at my home. I will see ya'll then!

There's no place like home..

What a cool trip! It has been far too long since I took this route west. Our youngest has yet to see all the wonders of the southwest. My most memorable ride west was when I fit in the rear dash of a Chrysler Newport driving across Texas at night. Laying there staring at all the stars. I had no idea how big this country is till that trip.

best part of any extended trip is coming home! Nothing like it!

I'm sure glad you both had such a good time, though!

Looking forward to your future post with pictures!

Hi Annie, the trip was fun (while it lasted) and the comments and photos were great too. But you are so right about getting home again. We won't be doing that for a couple of weeks yet, but thankfully the weather in Maine while a bit cooler is not affecting our health. Safe journeys back.
