A vacation is what you take when you can't take what you've been taking. - Earl Wilson

Springerville, Arizona

We left late out of Roswell, saying goodbye to our new friends. We are now in Springerville. Arizona. The road is as straight as an arrow and you can see for miles in every direction.

We did stop for a picture in the Valley of Fire. It was weird to see volcano lava in the middle of New Mexico. We are used to seeing it in Hawaii.

Oh, and while at McD's Ruth photographed three genuine cowboys with ice cream cones. She said they were very mannerly and insisted that she order first even though they were first in line.

We also passed huge dish-shaped antennas of a radio telescope in Soccorro, New mexico. They are VLA ( Very Large Array) telescopes of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory. Very impressive.

We had a ribeye and a prickly pear margarita at Java Blues just across the street from our motel.

Then we crashed.

An egotist is a person more interested in themselves then in me. - Ambrose Bierce
