Week #7: November 26, 2017 to December 2, 2017

The first day of this week is the mid point of our trip.  It is also the day we cross the mid point of Route 66.  Halfway between Chicago and L.A.  Then it is on to Ruidoso, New Mexico.  I didn’t know it but Ruidoso is in the mountain of New Mexico.  The mountains are a high or higher than the Rockies.  Not as rugged (we drove to the top of one on Nov. 27th) but just as high.  Over 12,000 feet.  Ruidoso itself is at 6,920 feet while Banff is 4,537 feet.

We took a couple long road trips from here.  One to the incomparable Carlsbad Caverns, and one to El Paso, Texas.  Unbelievably, we took Friday, December 1st off.  Not a single picture.
