Today we headed off to New Mexico. I drove hundreds of miles today for the first time in years, I forgot how much I love road trips. I drove through my first desert, the Mojave Desert; crossed my first mountain range, the Tehachapi Mountains, saw my first lava fields, saw the Colorado River for the first time and the most spectacular moon over Arizona, just amazing!
We also spotted our first Joshua tree and saw the real-honest-to-goodness Continental Divide. Poor thing was just posted off the highway, all on its own in a dusty patch of barren land, should really be in a grander site, if you ask me!
