Reeves in New Mexico

Hello All,

For those of you who didn't know or had no clue at all we are moving to New Mexico. Daniel accepted his job offer there and we are pretty excited about it. We just spent the last three days driving there house searching and driving back. We found one we really like and so far its ours so we are happy about that. I was going to blog about the drive there. It took quite a while to get there but we made it. We saw lots of different things on the way there. This was one of them




I don't know the story behind it but they thought it was important enough to put Giant letters on the mountain so I figured it was important enough to take a picture of. If you know what it is please enlighten me. Then we stopped in Monticello do get some lunch and stopped to see the

Mini temple there. It was very mini. I have never seen one that small in my life. The chapel next to it almost looked bigger. Oh and as a side note I think the drivers in Monticello need to take better driving tests or relearn. Then we needed Eva to take an eating break and needed me to start driving so we were going to go see this "canyon view" well it wasn't there. I think we were in Colorado at this time and it made me not trust the signs in Colorado for the parks. Anyway I took a picture while we stopped

As soon as we hit New Mexico I was shocked at the beauty. I am probably just nutty but I though it was beautiful. There were so many lone Mesa's and I would just thare at them. There was a sign on the way into New Mexico that said it was the enchanted state. Well it felt enchanting going in. None of my pictures did the Mesa's any good. I guess you will just have to see them yourselves.

They are much bigger than that trust me. So yeah its pretty on the way there. There was this little town called Ship rock and this next picture is why:

It looked like an enchanted castle to me. Anyway we found a great little house. We are just renting for at least a year so it will be perfect. The only grass in Albuquerque. So it was a success. We move next week so we will be busy and not blogging for awhile after next week.
