Getting Our Red Rocks On

Getting Our Red Rocks On

We left Holbrook, Arizona on May 1 for breakfast in Winslow - just so I could be standing on the corner in Winslow Arizona. Yup, that’s the place made famous in the Eagles song Take It Easy. We arrived fairly early in the morning and could hear various Eagles tunes broadcasted into the neighborhood as we walked the now popular intersection.

Pagosa Springs, Colorado to Sedona

Pagosa Springs, Colorado to Sedona

April 24th, we left the high elevation of Taos, New Mexico (6,969 ft.) for a slightly higher elevation in Pagosa Springs, Colorado (7,126 ft.). The drive north was absolutely beautiful. Our stop for 4 nights at a Wyndham resort was all about D scoping this area out for bike riding. The Pagosa area is known for its hot springs, year-round outdoor activities, brilliant fall leaf color, and the surrounding views of the big San Juan Mountains.

New Mexico Land of Enchantment

On the way to Taos, New Mexico on April 12, we spent the afternoon visiting Santa Fe and taking the High Road into Taos. We stayed 12 nights at a townhouse style Airbnb in the adobe city of Taos. We even had our own Kiva (fireplace) which was nice and cozy on the mornings that started in the 20s – a bit chilly after leaving the warmth of Corpus Christi.

Remember the Alamo!

Remember the Alamo!

We moved into the fantastic Alamo Heights historic neighborhood on March 20 for a week-long stay at an Airbnb home. This is one of my all-time favorite neighborhood stays (dates back to 1890). Charming tree-lined streets, and diversity in home styles (from Spanish Revival to Arts and Crafts, Mediterranean manors, colonial, stone cottages, and brick homes of tan, pink, and grey) made for a wonderful place to walk/run around.

Houston, the Damclark’s Have Landed

After our enjoyable Tyler stay, it was time to mosey on down the highway. On February 17, we meandered the backroads to Seabrook, Texas, a community on Clear Lake south of Houston. We’re here specifically to visit NASA Johnson Space Center/Space Center Houston and to hop over to Galveston Island while we’re in the area.

We’re in Fort Worth, Texas Y’all

We left Artesia, New Mexico on March 6, stopped for an overnight in Colorado City, Texas, then moved on down the road a piece to Fort Worth. After a week on the road, it was nice to have our West Texas home to settle in and prepare our own meals again.
