  BANDALIER NAT'L PARK










We had so much trouble with computer signals in New Mexico that keeping up our pictures on blogs was virtually impossible. Any signal I had was used for working and quick blogs. I am trying to take some time to show some of pictures we took while in New Mexico.


As a reminder, we had to put the RV in the shop for a couple of days. While it was there, we were able to use a car and drive up to Bandalier and back through Santa Fe.

Bandalier Park is the ruins of the Pueblo Indians (also referred to as cliff dwellers) dating back approximately 500 years. They lived in caves carved out of the soft mountains created by volcanic ash. Some of the pictures show the ruins of buildings that were built from block also carved from the soft stone. The bottom left picture is the ceremonial cave and we had to climb several flights of "ladders". There was a great view from up there. The round structure is called a kiva and tourists are allowed to go down in there. It was quite an experience and a place I have wanted to see for a long time.
I felt funny actually wearing shorts and probably looked even funnier than I felt. My arms and face are very tanned but my legs are stark white from wearing jeans while we ride. Hope I blind anybody while we were there.

Hey Ya'll

It is a bummer we have to blog like this now. I am sorry someone would look at this sight and post a negative comment.
You guys are out there sharing with others and passing along valuable information about early stroke detection. I hope no one ever needs the information you have but what are the chances of that. We all know someone who has suffered a stroke.

Not only are you sharing with others but you are sharing with your friends and family the day to day ADVENTURES of crossing the country on Horseback. I can tell you right now this girl will not even cross the country in a car anymore. There is a reason for Airplanes.

Keep your Heads up GIRLS.

Remember your roots.......... GRITS.......... Girls Raised In The South.......... and tell me what happen TODAY !
