Along the way...

22 hours each way in a car brings many photo opportunities... but here are just a few.

New Mexico has unique landscape that is beautiful in its own way, and very colorful interchanges!

The Howard Johnson at Tucumcari, NM has become an annual stopping place along the route to Albuquerque... and somewhat of a legend. The gentlemen who is the proprietor of the place is, well, sort of a unique character and has been the same (and only) man at the hotel every year, and he remembers us - and the rooms we stayed in.

Yeah! Home again!

Illinois is a great place to live - smiles are everywhere!

May I ask what town had the smiley face water tower?

To be honest - we don't know! I'm pretty sure it was between St. Louis & Springfield...

Glad you're home. :o) And especially glad your trip blog didn't mention one deer, cow, elk, or any other road hazard. :oD

I love the pictures, too. I've never been out that way so it's nice to *see* what's beyond the western border. ;o)

Deer, elk, cow... we didn't see a one! (Nor do we regret that fact.)

Well, okay, we saw a LOT of various bovine critters grazing on the western plains, but they were ALL behind fences.
