Then we drove on into Alququerque through a heavy, windy thunderstorm. We checked into the Enchanted Trails RV Park which dates back to the 1940's. We've been to Albuquerque several times before so we decided to stay at the park and cook dinner. Carolyn made meatloaf, sauteed mushrooms and mashed potatoes.

We went for a hike in the hills around the park. We also drove the scenic park roads and checked out the park lodge which was built in the 1930's by the WPA. Wednesday night we drove to Marfa. We had a drink at the El Paisano Hotel (which was the base for the stars and crew of the movie "Giant".) Then we did a wine tasting at the Luz de Estrella winery. We had dinner at a local Mexican restaurant called Alice's Diner. After that we drove out to the Marfa Lights viewing area and saw some lights that were probably headlights of cars on the highway to Presidio.
