The Land of Enchantment
We’re taking our time, enjoying the scenery, now that we’re on the secondary roads in New Mexico.
Marathon Lake, MS is a beautiful and dog-friendly campground with campsites right on the water. We were the only campers in the entire campground. The dogs were in heaven.
Another good campground is Brantley Lake in New Mexico, although the dogs and I had to ride in the back of the truck to access the lake. Buddy and I sat on the dog crate, like the Beverly Hillbillies.
This is our fourth cross-country trip and the dogs are real troopers n the road. We’ve found that if we stop every other day for a 2 day rest/play, they are happy and ready to roll. This is Buddy’s second trip and I’m pleased that he has matured into an excellent RV dog.
I know driving across the country in a 31 foot RV with 3 labs doesn’t sound like fun to some folks, but to us, it is the ultimate adventure with the ones you love.
We’re headed to The Grand Canyon for our second stay at the North Rim. I hope to see the illusive Kaibab Squirrel again.
I’ll be in touch when I can, and I hope to have a connection long enough to catch up on everyone’s blog. I’m still going through Blogger’s Detox and the withdrawals are Hell!
