I chose to take the old Route 66 through Pecos to Santa Fe and then back to Albuquerque. I noticed this thing that looks like a building on a mountain top. I still don’t know what it is.

Route 66 follows the Santa Fe trail for much of this trip to Santa Fe.

 The Pecos National Park was a wonderful surprise and an educational experience for me.

Next stop the Leisure Mountain RV Park for a few days while I wait out the terrific wind and snow storms expected. Time to read a book and just chill out after driving so much.
