Aliens in Roswell

We stopped in Roswell, New Mexico, to see the Aliens. The town has really embraced the whole Alien thing. The visit to the Alien/Area 51 museum was well worth it. We believe.

Carlsbad Caverns

We tried to visit Carlsbad Caverns on the way to Texas for the Solar eclipse, but we were unable to get entry tickets. Probably all the other Solar Eclipse seekers had the same idea. Anyway, lot’s of tickets were now…

Guadalupe Peak

Red Canyon

Between Great Basin National Park and Capitol Reef National is the Red Canyon.in Dixie National Forest. It was a good spot to stop for the night. We headed up a dirt side road to find a secluded wild camping spot.…
