Heading home

The last of our trip was through California to Laughlin, Nevada and on to  Albuquerque, New Mexico.  We had some very long drives.  It is a LONG way home.  But we saw some beautiful country and some interesting sites. 

There were so many oil pumps in this part of California.  Even in Texas I have never seen this many in one spot.  It really looks like a mess.10-02-14 travel thru CA and NV 0110-02-14 travel thru CA and NV 0210-02-14 travel thru CA and NV 0410-02-14 travel thru CA and NV 0510-02-14 travel thru CA and NV 06Then I did not get any good pictures of the rose operations. Fields of all colors of roses.  Oh, I wish we had stopped and I have just smelled them.10-02-14 travel thru CA and NV 09Then the desert on the way to Laughlin. Pretty in it’s own way.10-02-14 travel thru CA and NV 1110-02-14 travel thru CA and NV 2410-02-14 travel thru CA and NV 31I got us reservations at Harrah’s in Laughlin for just $29 a night.  Wow, that was great.  We did not go swimming but the pools were nice.  This is the adult pool with a bar and hot tub.  Really nice.10-02-14 21-51-2810-02-14 21-51-31On toward home…10-03-14 08-05-0710-03-14 08-28-59We stopped in a little place in AZ to buy the boys some fireworks and found the Continental Divide!

Albuquerque.  The timing could not have been better.  We got to go to the balloon fiesta.  And I actually was able to get us a reservation at a motel just a couple of exits from the balloon launch.  It was a wonderful end to our trip.

I have so many pictures I am going to put them into a few albums for easier upload and viewing.

As you can probably tell, I love the balloons.  It is so worth the trip and the traffic and the cold.  I recommend it to everyone.  Oh, the bear statue was at our hotel as were some of the pictures of some of the balloons.  They came right over as we were packing to go home.  They even had chairs and tables set up to watch from the hotel. So cool!  Take a little time and view the slide shows.

Thanks for stopping by!
