The final day of our trip dawned cool and sunny (I do love the desert in winter), and the only driving on the agenda was a quick visit to a gluten free bakery a couple of miles down the road from our hotel.
The sixth day of our trip began with an epic breakfast in the Strater’s beautiful mahogany dining room, then it was back on the road for a long day of driving.
Today began with the best breakfast of the trip so far – a hearty cooked meal at the restaurant, Hogan’s, adjacent to our hotel. Tom had a plentiful portion of biscuits and sausage gravy, whilst I stuck with the tried-and-tested combination of fried eggs, bacon and potatoes. Then we had a quick look around the local trading post, and a very interesting exhibit about WWII Navajo code talkers, before getting on the road.
The plan for our latest trip morphed from a pleasant diversion on the way to a conference in Las Vegas into a 1000 mile circular roadtrip through New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Colorado. Each day brought all kinds of new and interesting things to see, I ended up writing a blog post each day so we didn’t forget anything, and of course we took far too many photographs of it all. This is day 1 of 7, so consider yourself duly warned…!
