Gallup to Albuquerque.    Leaving Gallup on old 66, we passed by this.

It is obviously needed here in Gallup because when I walked down the road towards this tent, I noticed these little bottles, airline size, everywhere, one every 3 or 4 feet lying in the weeds beside the road.   So I started a collection.

 Crossed the continental divide at 7300 feet, definitely picked up a few mph on the downhill side.  Stopped at a nice new rest stop, with an unusual feature.  They had a set of buttons to vote whether you liked the stop or not.  We debated what would happen if you voted no, decided maybe it would give you give you a shock if it did not like your answer,,,,,,

In Albuquerque, trying to find the right exit, the GPS took us through a maze of freeway, I think more complicated than LA.

Found it, the Elegante Hotel,,,,,

And promptly unloaded the cars.   Here is a riddle, how do you make a too tall Fordor fit in a Touring trailer?  Answer:   Put smaller wheels on it, right Jim??

Rooms are nice, view is questionable,  2 Rms, Riv Vu,   remember that movie?

Anyway, had a welcoming party and we are ready to rumble.
