Las Vegas, Baby!

July 10th. Having packed up last night we are ready to roll this morning.  Oh wait.  The Chiweenie Brothers, those 2Dogs who Travel, are DEMANDING their breakfast this morning.  They are usually pretty patient as long as they get to hike a leg first thing, but this morning they act like they are starving. Surely I didn’t forget to feed them their dinner last night … Hmmm.  I forget coffee and get their breakfast served. You guys eat. I’ll wait for McDs coffee.  

We leave Villanueva behind us, catch Hwy 3 near the church, turn right and then it’s I-25 N to Las Vegas. Las Vegas, New Mexico, about 30 miles away. It’s a gorgeous drive.  The higher elevations in this state are still lush and green.  Juniper and a few small pines dot the landscape.

Travel days mean McDonalds coffee and sometimes a McMuffin if the next town on the map has a McDs.  Las Vegas is a nice size historical town so McDonald’s coffee it is.  With three cream please.  

I’ve done a bit of research and Las Vegas is not only a historical town, a lot of the old homes are not only still standing but are being lived in.  I love old architecture, and I relish driving through old town, sipping my coffee and photographing the old homes and other buildings.
