Day 1
of our drive to Texas

Photobucket The Budgets drive through Spanish Fork Canyon Photobucket MOAB

We LOVE Moab it is soo beautiful! Photobucket Next stop: Colorado
It was gorgeous! { I really didn't get any pictures of Colorado} However, it was packed full of farms in the fall time. This drive came at a perfect time... all the leaves were changing and it couldn't have been more beautiful!
Final stop of the day: New Mexico
It's landscape was much different from Utah and Colorado's.... but, equally as beautiful!
Dear New Mexico,
We enjoyed your different landscape and your beautiful sun set. However, "new" Mexico reminds us of Mexico. Stray dog's were everywhere, and bars were over all your simple gas stations. When we pulled over to the side of the freeway around 10 pm {due to our NEVER sleeping Everest} we felt like some man eater was going to come and drag our dead corps into your landscape. Thanks to my vanilla for packing some heat to keep us all safe!!




Good night Albuquerque, NM...

All-n-all it was a beautiful day! We honestly can say we really enjoyed the drive. Both Aaron and I haven't been to NM before so it was a fun little adventure. Aside from the beauty.... Aaron drove the truck and Everest and I set sail alone in the car. That in and of itself was an ADVENTURE!! We left Utah at 10 am and landed in Mexico around midnight! {yes... midnight} I think it could go down as the longest day ever!

I'm glad you made it safe. I like the pictures. I'm sad I couldn't come to your going away dinner. I miss you.
