For Thanksgiving this year I decided to take a road trip. This road trip included a few stops and lots of fun.
Stop 1: Albuquerque, New Mexico. I had breakfast the next morning with an online friend that I talked to a lot, but never met. Always great to meet someone in person that you know pretty well.
Stop 2: El Paso, Texas. Thanksgiving holidays with my daughter and son-in-law – Jennifer and Jeremy Merkley. This trip involved:
- Early Christmas shopping.
- A hike to the only tin mines in the United States
- Thanksgiving Dinner with family and new friends
- Cooking my first turkey in years.
Stop 3: Las Cruces, New Mexico. No trip to El Paso is complete without a meal at El Sombrero Restaurant and their delicious steak fajita burrito with queso on top.
Stop 4: Phoenix, Arizona. The first ever Tryptophun Run.
Stop 5: Flagstaff, Arizona. This was just an overnight stay. But I appreciate them allowing me to experience my first earthquake. (I had to google it in the morning because I wasn’t sure if one really woke me up or I dreamed it.)
Stop 6: Beaver, Utah. Picked up two little Yorkie puppies for my sister.
Stop 7: Home.
