New Mexico Trip

I'm writing this post from the McDonald's in Aztec, New Mexico.  It's the only place around I can get WiFi.  Right now we're camped at the Cottonwood Campground in Navajo Dam on the San Juan River.

The first part of our trip was to Alamogordo, so we could spend Easter with our son and his wife (he's stationed at Holloman Air Force Base). On the way we stopped for a couple of nights in Deming, New Mexico. We took a day trip to Hatch, the "Green Chile Capital of the World."  I bought some jars of chilies and salsa, and enjoyed a nice Mexican food lunch. Then we went on to Alamogordo. We camped at Oliver Lee Memorial State Park - our favorite place to stay when we visit Kenny.

After we left Alamogordo, we spent a couple of nights in Albuquerque at the Kirtland AFB FamCamp.  (Nice place - long, wide, pull-through sites, close to Costco and other shopping.) Then last Thursday, after a great breakfast at Cracker Barrel, we came to where we are now.
