Santa Fe Skies

I mentioned last week that I was bummed we had to drive through and miss Santa Fe. After breaking down it was the closest town so here we are. It’s actually our 3rd time here and one of our favorite RV parks (Santa Fe Skies RV Park) welcomed us with open arms after a very long day. If you’ve followed our journey from early on you’ll remember this spot as the place we saw incredible pink snow at sunset in the spring of 2018. When we arrived tonight the sunset didn’t disappoint either. I’m obsessed with the skies in Santa Fe. I told Jason it’s as though the clouds have a love affair with the mountains here.

I’ll just be over here photographing the sky in Santa Fe until we can figure out another repair and where we should reroute to. We’d love to catch up to our planned route but we may need to skip a stop or two.

Another day, another Santa Fe sky. This time with a little rain.

We broke down.

If you followed our Instagram stories today you know it was a rough travel day for us. 12 miles in we broke down. Thank God we were able to limp off I-25 to a pull off area that was much safer than the super narrow shoulder. Getting help on a holiday proved to be extra challenging, time consuming, frustrating and expensive. 8.5 hours and $650 later we were back on the road, all of us exhausted. Colorado as planned was just too far for today so we are going to stay put in Santa Fe for a few days to recoup.

Hot Springs National Park

Yesterday we loaded up and took a bunch of empty jugs to Hot Springs National Park in hopes of getting some water. This NP was our first stop out of Texas when we launched two plus years ago. During our first visit we learned that there are huge fountains available to the public to get free (healing) water. Because national parks are still closed we didn’t know if the fountains would be blocked off. They were not and oh my goodness was it busy. Not the park or spring, but the fountains. There were people filling up entire truckloads and hundreds of containers at a time. Way busier than our first trip through when the park was open and crowded. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised by that. This spring water has so many healing properties, boosts the immune system and aids in respiration. We parked, filled up our containers and walked to the spring where no one was around. I forgot my camera so these are all iPhone pics. The kids loved returning here and reminiscing over how much has changed and all the experiences they’ve had on the road since our first stop. ❤️
