The trip home was relatively uneventful, after the downpour in Amarillo (two inches of rain in that bucket dump!). We hit downpours in a couple of places, but mostly had beautiful green vistas and gorgeous skies of blue and puffy white clouds.
The bottom picture is on I-40 coming into the eastern plains of New Mexico from Texas. The next two show why I LOVE the scenery along US 550 between here and Albuquerque, through Cuba, N.M. The next-to-top one is the wonderful view of the La Platas one gets coming up the Hesperus Highway north of Red Mesa.
And the top picture is my favorite section of the road between here and Durango, in the area of Montoya's ranch. It can also be the worst weather you encounter in winter, but it's beautiful the rest of the time. tv
