370 miles from Amarillo, TX to Grants, NM.  A short drive across the panhandle of Texas and on into New Mexico.  New Mexico seems to be a state that is completely uphill both ways.  At least it seems so when pulling a trailer behind you.  For the most part the trip was nice and easy drive if not long.  As I passed through Albuquerque I waved to my friends at AAMCO.  Felt a bit lazy so only waved using one finger.  Turns out I traversed another time zone into the Mountain time zone.  So gained another hour.  An interesting thing is that when I go into Arizona tomorrow it will be one hour gain again but I will still be in the Mountain time zone! Reason being that almost all of Arizona does not observe daylight savings time, so instead of springing forward earlier this month they stayed the same which is one hour earlier than areas that changed.  So I will gain an hour as I go into the Petrified Forest NP tomorrow!  Another interesting note about Arizona is coming up later.  While checking in I met the nicest lady and she told me about a neat overlook nearby that is great for sunset photos.  I will be heading out shortly to get me some photos and will delay this posting so I can add a couple of photos of that.  She also turned me onto a national monument name El Morro which is on my way to Holbrook, AZ tomorrow.

 

The below images were taken at Sandstone Bluffs near Grants, NM.  Sunset was almost non-existent.

Sorry for the delay in viewing your blog. Did not realize you were already on your trip until Julie called me about planting iris rhizomes. Beautiful photos - and amazing rock and sandstone formations.
