May 29, 2016: Driving

Today was the one big day of driving, about 8 hours from Panguitch, UT to Santa Fe, NM> We hit the road early and drove straight through, with stops only for breakfast and gas. We couldn’t resist the “Ho-Made Pies” at the Thunderbird Cafe in Mt. Carmel Junction. Apparently they’ve had that motto for a long time, and decided to embrace the double entendre. I bought a t-shirt.


We crossed the Colorado at Glen Canyon Dam — you can see how low the water is after prolonged drought. The white area is normally under water.

Arrived in Santa Fe without incident. This is where we’re spending the remaining several days; I have some target birds in the area, and we’ll have to go visit the museum at Los Alamos.
