We woke this morning to heavy rain. The mid-west is having a bit of a depression at the moment. For New Mexico it is a breath of fresh air as the state had been suffering from a drought over the past couple of years. It wasn't cold by Scottish standards. The breakfast at the Hawthorn Suites was not very appetising. We only had fruit juice as we …
Our day started out with coffee and homemade muffins at Blue Swallow. Then we were off to Santa Rosa, NM to see the Route 66 Auto Museum and the Blue Hole. The museum had some awesome old cars, bikes, and scooters. The Blue Hole was very interesting. It is 81 ft. deep, 60 ft. in diameter and the water temp is 61. No one was diving or swimming when we were there. We made a stop at Cline's Corner which is an old curio store that ...

It's pretty good coffee, nice carrot cake and yummy chocolate and peanut butter cookies. We were ...

Goodnight Harvey ...

A good hotel, what we have come to expect from the brand on this trip across the US. The gentleman at reception was very helpful when I was having problems printing my route in the business centre. The breakfast was of a good standard and the room was large with a huge shower in the bathroom.
