On The Road Again (Part 4) - Santa Fe and Home

Our stay in Santa Fe was short - a trip to the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, lunch at Tia Sophia's, a few shops, some sightseeing, 9 holes of golf for Tom,  dinner at a Japanese restaurant, and visiting with Eric and Lucie. 

The next morning we headed south to Socorro, where we met Tom's sister, Phoebe for lunch at Frank and Lupe's, and took possession of our new pottery owl that Phoebe made for us!

After lunch we headed west on highway 60 stopping in Pie Town for......pie,of course.

Past the Very Large Array, into Arizona, catching Interstate 40 at Holbrook, Arizona and stopping for the night at Williams, Arizona.

The Very Large Array is a National Radio Astronomy Observatory, consisting of large radio antennas on the Plains of San Augustin in western New Mexico. 

The next morning we were up before the sun heading for home on Interstate 40 and caught this great sunrise .

It's a long stretch - Williams to Kingman, Arizona, then cross into California at Needles, then on to Barstow, Mojave, Tehachapi (where we discovered a great barbeque place), Bakersfield, and home!  And that was our southwestern roadtrip!  Hope you enjoyed the trip!
