We're further on down the road, still on highway 40. We found that many of the rest areas are closed in New Mexico. The pups don't like that as they like to go potty when they want to.. not only where there's a highway rest area.
We're still east of Albuquerque and stopped at a Native American tourist trap (with a Dairy Queen on one end of the building) We had a snack and asked if it was ok to park in the big parking lot for the night. We were told yes and although its a big area, its all asphalt with no grass, just a narrow strip of gravel on the edge of the lot. The pups will have to make out the best they can.
We decided to look for an RV park tomorrow when we should be around the New Mexico/Arizona border.
There was a little bit of drizzle today for about half a minute but at least the temperature is much cooler than we had a couple of days ago. Fueled up in New Mexico.. $3.89 a gallon.
