Day 6.....the final day of the Canada trip
The last day saw us heading out fairly early to make the long run from Santa Fe to San Antonio. I will definitely have to make it back to Santa Fe because I didn't get to see any of the "must see" places here. We knew it would be a long day but Helen had to fly out the following day to a conference in Florida. Worse case, we knew we could do the last part of this stretch the next morning if we had to since she didn't fly out until afternoon but we knew it would be much better if we could make it home by nighttime.
Somehow, we didn't get too many pictures of our last day. A couple in Santa Fe......
And then on to Roswell. Now Steve has been to Roswell a number of times since it is on the route he and his Dad usually take to the motorcycle rally in Ruidosa. Of course, you probably know that Roswell trades on the Alien theme so Helen and I wanted to grab a couple of pictures advertising this. We didn't do a lot more than stop to pick up lunch to go and snap a couple pictures on the way through.
And then we were off again. I think this was a dam we passed near Roswell.
Snapped this photo as we went by Carlsbad.
And caught a picture of gas burning off oil field equipment.
Ft Stockton was a little drearier than what I expected but Steve said it looked better after you got off the I-10 Access road. Maybe another time. Everything after this was really familiar and we didn't take any pictures. We arrived back in San Antonio about 9PM.
