From Amarillo TX to Santa Fe, NM

Coming from the East, Tucumcari - on Route 66 - was yesterday and it is today a great place to stop

New Mexico's long and endless roads to the West (I-40)

An old and still functional gasoline station in New Kirk in New Mexico, located on the real old Route 66

Beside the gas station was a little small, tiny post office where we had to bring a big order to send out to one of our good customer

"Be beware of the - sleeping - dog"
in front of the souvenir shop and gas station! He not even opened his eyes :)

Pretty little Chapel on Route 66 - it is no more used for sure: the walls were broken and no windows and doors left and the tower looks close to the one in Pisa, Italy :)

Little houses on the rail road line from Tucumcari to Santa Fe

Look these roads...!
It's I-84 from Santa Rosa to Santa Fe

I love these streets!

Still snow covered mountains in the Sangre de Christo region

Finally we arrived in a warm and sunny Santa Fe, the Capitol of New Mexico.

Hi my friends,

We made it to beautiful Santa Fe! It's summer here, nice and warm - a good feeling after many days of fog and cold in Amarillo! We will go out soon to explore Down Town, to see everything as possible and to see the Georgia O'Keeffe and Ansel Adams Museum, for sure. I will show you some photos tomorrow, as always :)

I wish you a wonderful day!
Susanne and David

I miss those long straight stretches of hiway with no buildings in sight. Beautiful photos as always.

I always love the mountain pictures.
But the sleeping dog was pretty cute too!
