Saturday, January 13th
This weekend we have been getting some fresh air and exploring around New Mexico. On Saturday, we drove to Chinle, Arizona and hiked the national monument Canyon de Chelly. The views were breathtaking, we all had a blast, and got some much needed sun. We ate lunch at the bottom of the canyon and then made the trek back up.
Sunday, January 14th
On Sunday, we stayed in Gallup and hiked the Pyramid trail. This one was a little bit more challenging than Saturday’s because of the higher altitude but still exciting. We saw a lot of dogs on this trail, which was a nice surprise. After our hike, we stopped and toured a famous local hotel “El Rancho.” We got to see the presidential suite and perused their gift shop. During the evening we ate leftovers, relaxed, and worked on our 1,000 piece puzzle.
Monday, Jaunary 15th
Monday was also filled with hiking. We traveled to El Morro, hiked, and saw the ruins along with signatures that were inscribed in the rocks. After that, we did some shopping at a local gift shop and got some New Mexico souvenirs. After the three day weekend, we are ready to get back to school and see our kids!
Thanks for stopping by!
