New Mexico Rain! We drove from Tucumcari almost to Albuquerque and back. Sara's wallet was found, and we got to see this beautiful rain.

Saul and Sara headed into Petroglyph park outside Albuquerque. We arrived ar 4:51pm, the park closes at 5, but there is also an open area we went up to see.

Climbing up in the rocks, checking out the petroglyphs!

Saul decided he liked running on the sand, back to the parking lot!

Views from the South Rim of the grand canyon

In the "WatchTower" at the canyon

I do not want to walk on the sidewalk

At a scenic outlook, we backed the sprinter up for lunch. Sat in the back, made the ice chest a "table" for Saul. Ate, watched Yo Gabba Gabba on the laptop, and saw the canyon.

View of Sara out takin photos while we had lunch

Saul is the Leader! we went on a mini hike, and he insisted he was in front and the leader.

the speed limit in Texas is 80

so I went 80. as fast as the van will go

Got in last night, had dinner with James at Hyde Park Bar & Grill, talked a storm, then went to Chris' house to unload
He got home, we delivered BSA to gal for Ken, came back and slept great.

This morning, woke up, went to Academy, for sandals, which I forgot to bring. Stopped by Tamale House #3 for some breakfast Tacos, then to OMJ;s to eat.

Off to Mac the Welders, where I got to ride OMJ's restorated 305 Honda Superhawk. It ran insanely smooth, fast, light, and fun. Of course, it was very hot outside, and i could not take a long long ride. But what a brilliant bike.

Then we had to get James home for his trip to Stephenville. After, Chris and I went to Joes, to grab him, then down to Cabela's in Buda. Stocked up on some necessities, then back into town. Visited Pointey Headed Steve, who has a hilarious cat that falls over if he ties socks around it. Well, I need to find the YouTube Worthy video that Joe took, to explain.

Loaded up, and out to the Salt Lick for DINNER!
