Needless to say, not much knitting got done

Actually, I've been back since last friday but what with all the unpacking and cleaning, etc. I just never got around to posting. And now, work is trying to swallow me up! ugh. I managed to get off on time today though so I think I'm starting to get caught up.

New Mexico was awesome! These are just a few of the highlights.
We camped in a tent the first three nights (we're extremely cheap) in the Red River area. While we were up in this area we did some off-roading on all the jeep trails they have in the mountains. It was beautiful! and a lot colder than I thought. It got down to freezing two of the nights. Then we visited friends in Albuquerque for a night and saw the petroglyphs at Petroglyph National Monument.
We then made our way back up towards Santa Fe and saw the "tent rocks" at the Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument. This area was really amazing! We took another day trip to Bandelier National Monument and saw the ancient cliff dwellings of the Pueblo Indians.We stayed 3 nights at The Bobcat Inn, just outside of Santa Fe. I HIGHLY recommend this place! It was very affordable, clean, quiet, beautiful, and the owner, who used to be a caterer, cooks the most delicious gormet breakfasts every day! I really didn't want to leave.
So there you have it! This is a great area for families to go much to do, all within easy reach of Santa Fe. Of course, we here in North Texas have it pretty easy because it's only a 9 or 10 hour drive from here. Even with gasoline being high it's still cheaper than flying.
Now, I must get some knitting done! I only have 3/4 of a sock to show for the past week and a half.
