This was another shot from our trip out west and what much of New Mexico looks like in the eastern part of the state. While it lacks trees and vegetation, which we are use to, we really found the landscape quite beautiful. I never thought I would say that after my teenage days of driving through New Mexico on our way to Colorado to snow ski during the winter months. It is amazing how 30 years can change one’s perspective. It is also obvious why so many people love living in the state. There really is the feeling of openness, big country, big skies and beautiful sunsets.
One more note from our trip, while the Oklahoma portion of I-40 was the longest in our trip, it was also much nicer than I remember Oklahoma being. Again, I can see why so many love living there. I know the wind can be bothersome after a while, but every area has its drawbacks.
