Image from the archive: Outside Jim Gray's Petrified Wood Co. in Holbrook, AZ.
Because this particular route (MN-SD-WY-CO-NM-AZ-CA) is now old hat to us, we haven't stopped at all our usual unusual spots. That means fewer fresh pics for the blog. I'll try to post more photos from the archives in the future.
Some of the things we've skipped this trip: Tinker Town, Stewart's Petrified Wood, Tiny Town, Rapid City Dinosaur Park, 1880 Town...
The day started out as a search for dried chile, including a trip north to Chimayo (above).
Breakfast at Tecolote. There's a recipe for the piñon pancake floating around the internet—untested by us, but not for long!
We also had a fabulous farewell lunch at Cafe Pasqual's—no pics, but damn, the cold green chile and avocado soup was AMAZING. (Quick shout-out to Tia Sophia's, too, where we ate only once this trip. For the record, they make my favorite red sauce.)
Dragged ourselves out of town around 4pm, and booked it to Flagstaff. Hit a lot of smoke from nearby forest fires:
Today (Sunday) is the last leg of our trip...
