Maxie Poo, I love you, and I miss you, thanks for a great 13 years. I hope that across the rainbow bridge, you have a lot of rabbits, squirrels, and chipmunks to chase and you have endless snow since you loved the snow so much. Rest in Peace, Puppy Poo, I love you and I miss you, and you were an awesome dog.
Colorado is still breathtakingly beautiful. I love Colorado. As we drove out of Colorado and towards New Mexico, the Rocky Mountains were absolutely gorgeous. There was still snow on the peaks of the mountains, and they just tower over everything with this beautiful blue-gray rock and they take my breath away every time I see them. I think Colorado and the Rocky Mountains are some of the most beautiful places in the US, and I’ve seen a lot of beautiful places on our road trips, but none of them hypnotize me and leave me gaping and awestruck like the Rocky Mountains.
New Mexico is hilly. It was mostly yellow since the grass died from winter. We drove through some back roads since Sir Google told us it was a quicker route than the main highways. The back roads went through some ghost-towns like Roy, which only has 234 citizens [my school has more students than that!] and Mosquero, which has even less people, with 120 citizens. The towns look abandoned and empty, and they’re interesting places to drive through even though there’s not much to see just because it’s so different than what I’m used to.
There’s also a scary roads that goes down a cliff basically, and it’s sharp angled turns and I seriously felt like I was going to die and plummet to death as Justin drove down them, but we didn’t, and for some reason he loves that road. I give it this much, it’s pretty.
I was happy once we got on the main highways again, basically right at the Texas border because… main highways have a lot of places to go to the bathroom at and that’s super important for me for any road trip.
We wound up in Lubbock, Texas for the night, which the home of Texas Tech University, and it sort of reminds me of a mini Houston. Surprisingly, the hotel is very crowded, I guess there’s an amusement park open around here called Joyland, and maybe parents took there kids to Lubbock to Joyland for spring break? I really have no idea. I was surprised with how many people are actually in the hotel we’re staying in and how busy Lubbock it.
Tomorrow, we’ll be back to Houston, it’s about a 9 hour drive to Houston. I’m eager to get back home and hug my kitties, especially after the sad news about Max today. I won’t be excited to go back to school on Monday especially since although spring break was fun, driving across the country isn’t exactly relaxing, but it will be nice to sleep in my own bed, and see the kitties like I mentioned.
Tonight, I think we’re just going to relax in the hot tub and go to bed early since it’s a long drive home tomorrow. It’s been a cool week, and we’ve had some memorable times and seen so much, but it’s definitely time to go back home 🙂
