Day 6 Williams, AZ to Albuquerque, NM

Travel day today. We left Williams at 7:20 am and arrived at Leisure Mountain RV Park about 8 miles east of Albuquerque. It was about 350 miles and Ralph drove the entire time again. I’m getting the feeling that he doesn’t want me to drive. What do you think?

Our day was fairly uneventful except for the humming bird that came in through an open window. I was able to guide him out through the same window. The rig next door has a feeder and there are three humming birds hanging out there. I tried to get Simon to look out the window for some entertainment, but he was having nothing to do with it. He spent the entire eight hours we were on road in his new favorite hiding place under the sofa. No food, water, or litter box for eight hours. Probably awake the whole time too. Wonder if he’ll ever get comfortable while we are underway. We are doing what we can to keep the little guy happy. We do enjoy having him with us.

We’ll be headed about 100 miles north of here tomorrow to camp at a Bureau of Land Management (BLM) campground in the Orilla Verde Recreation Area. They only have about 14 sites along the Rio Grande River. We will have water and electricity which is very unusual for a BLM campground. It is very close to Taos and we’ll be exploring the area on the MC. We will stay here seven nights and then we’ll head to Colorado. I understand that connectivity can be an issue in this area, so I may not be able to post for a while. We’ll see.

My former brother-in-law and his family will come up from Albuquerque to visit us at the campground. I haven’t seen them for eight years and I am really looking forward to it. Dennis and his family lived in San Jose when I moved to California and I spent many weekends at their home. Can’t wait…

  1. Enjoy the time with Dennis and give him a big hug for me! Was so good to see you at St. George Island!

    • Beth, Just left Dennis and sad to go. We had such a great visit with him and all the kids. It had been way to long. This was my year for the Johnson reconnect and I’m very happy about that! Xoxoxo
