You’ll be seeing great sights!
This is probably as close to a tornado as I will get, living in the desert...not a tornado, but a hell of a thunderstorm on our way through New Mexico, heading towards our first stop in Las Vegas.
Stops in the little town of Las Vegas, NM and then Pecos National Monument, made for a pretty wonderful first day out...OK, so I sort of forced my Dad to stop at the Indian ruins and old Spanish Mission of Pecos - I told you it was like being a kid again ('cept I didn't throw up in their car this time)! Actually, my Mom and I got a map at the one and only place in Las Vegas that they were going to stop at, that directed us up, into old town (which they had never explored), and made him take us up there, too - great little town! After travelling on down the road and exploring Pecos on foot (ever mindful of rattlesnakes), it was on to Santa Fe.
