Across the street from our hotel in Santa Rosa, New Mexico was a playground. We took full advantage of it!
Emily's traveling companions
The first night we got to Platoro, we fished (just outside the back of our cabin!). It's a good thing we did because they started letting water out of the dam and the river rose about 3 feet (maybe more) so we couldn't fish in the river the rest of the time we were there!
This bridge has been there at least 30 years (probably more!). We have pictures of Jenni and my dad on it from their trip 30 years ago.
Emily had her first big bathtub baths on the trip. The first one (in Santa Rosa) was terrible, but once I got in the tub with her in Platoro, she was fine.
That big white "thing" behind us? Snow!
Behind me and Emily is the outlet for the dam. They had to release water from the lake because they had gotten so much rain recently. That's why we couldn't fish in the river. We've been there before where you could almost walk into the pipes (if you could get to them) because so little water was being let out.
Our dinner stop in Durango. A little pricey, but Emily took care of that. She managed to "steal" a spoon without us knowing!
