Headed home!

From California, there is only one direction, east. Arizona sunsets await us!

In New Mexico, we stop at Meteor Crater, very close to the Painted Desert for those who followed our route 66 adventure. Formed 50 millions years ago, it apparently is not so different from Sudbury’s Crater. This one can fit 10 football fields and hold 2 million spectatorsmeteor crater 1

In Albuquerque, we stay at the Route 66 RV Resort. 

In Texas, the Big Texan RV Park offers free limo service  to… the Big Texan Steak House. But we were there while travelling Route 66 and choose to have a quieter dinner, in the motorhome.

In Springfield Missouri, what else…Route 66 KOA. The weather is great. 65 and sunny so we sit outside to enjoy the last of the warmth for a while. We spot a robin and I ask it to fly home soon so spring can arrive early in Val Caron. Roger says : The bird is probably thinking that we are not too intelligent heading home so soon… lol

Weather permitting of course, we will be home on the 25th. What a great holiday! But it is always good to be home 🙂
