Hot, dusty, but beautiful, Ricardo and I are on the Road to Taos.  From Kerrville to the northwest we road through historic West Texas towns like Mountain Home, Menard, Junction, Lubbock and Muleshoe.  Each with it's own unique history.  Past oil fields, cotton fields and even several aromous cattle feed lots.  Life was hot but great.

And what did we do different?  Well, we ran into Sam in Lubbock who was sitting on the hood of a small roadster and of course Ricardo had to stop to see what kind of car?  Sam offered to let Ricardo drive it but Ricardo only satin it.  I think I would have driven it it it was air conditioned.

Over four hundred fifty miles up the road, in blazing hot sun, we finally arrived in Clovis NM.  Dinner at a Subway, some quick shopping at Walmart and we are now in our hotel for the night.  Tomorrow we will leave early, stop in Las Vegas, NM for a late breakfast and then drive the beautiful mountain road to Taos.  We should arrive on the Taos Plaza by mid afternoon.  They are eagerly waiting on us!
