desert southwest road trip 2013

Hiking adventure. Pretty to look at. Don't touch!
The kids and I went on a road trip to visit the Grandparents who are 'snowbirding' in Truth or Consequences, NM this winter.

Hot springs, desert hikes, visiting the Rio Grande, window shopping on the main street - pretty exciting stuff happening in the TORC.

Except for almost visiting the local hospital due to asthma, it was a pretty great trip.

Plants in sunny window sill? Yes.
An example of something to avoid on a desert hike.
Old books. Yummy.
Time to work on those Baby Hiking Muscles.
Like to visit random small town libraries? I do.

Old service station.
Old business sign mural. Love.

Window display.
No texting while driving! Pix? Totally okay.

You need to visit (all of which can be done on a detour off the freeway through town):

Riverbend Hotsprings
Relax in your own private hotspring with a view of the Rio Grande. That's just cool.

Passion Pie Cafe
Best coffee in town. Super strong, the way it's meant to be.

Black Cat Books & Coffee
Great selection of used books. Best carrot cake ever!

Here are a few pix of our trip.
