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.Then 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.Then the desert on the way to Laughlin. Pretty in it’s own way.I 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.On toward home…We 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!
