Aztec, New Mexico: June 27-28, 2015

“Where is Aztec and what are you doing there?”  Good question!  It’s not exactly a destination and it’s definitely not on the beaten path.  Our friend Alan from Mammoth mentioned it in his blog.  It sounded interesting and was close enough to where we are heading, so why not work it in for a couple of nights.

The reason we are in Aztec.

And ride it for a couple of days!  It was fun, and it was different, but it’s definitely not Phil’s World or any of the Hurricane rides.  We are glad we did it and it felt great to get those endorphins going again.  The entire world is a better place after a good ride.  The beer tastes better, your spouse is better looking, and all problems become small.

Nice rock at the beginning.

The first day we did the 10 mile loop. The second day the Outer Limits.

Awesome $20 full hook up site. We were at the Ruins Road RV Park.  Mostly permanent residences. But we scored the sweet spot.

The first evening we had some great lightening and thunder with light showers. This is looking east from our site. Behind the cottonwoods is the Animas River. All of a sudden the sun broke through in the west and for a few moments gave us this beautiful view.

Then an hour later this awesome sunset.

Birthday Moscow Mules! (Thanks Vinny & Diane!) This is what 55 and 47 looks like. I'm thinking 47 looks pretty good, but that 55 year old man, I don't know.

Kicking it.

Amelia all giddy as only Amelia can get. We just arrived at KOA Cortez. Amelia went in the office to check us in and they all remembered her from last year. Of course! And then we were laughing as we followed the golf cart escort to our site.
