Where I stayed
High Desert RV Park
We woke up around 7am feeling rather cold as it was freezing last night, so we got up and headed off out of town stopping at the nearest rest area to have some breakfast. After breakfast, we got back on the road and a few hours later we reached Albuquerque and looked for a visitor information centre. We saw a sign for visitor info but had trouble finding the right exit off the interstate and had to double back. Stopping in a fuel station to top up on some more petrol at a pretty cheap $2.99pg, we got some directions of how to get back on the interstate, (it's so confusing round here) and found the right exit. Problem was that there were no signs to tell us where to go next, but as luck would have it we passed a barbers that had haircuts for $8. So we stopped in and had, (the most we've paid on our trip), a pretty amateur hair cut, (Cat's guy's hand shook!). Oh well, at least it will grow and we can get it sorted when we get back
Had a bit of a lie-in but had to get up around 8am as it was too cold to stay in bed. We put two loads of washing on and had our breakfast in the main building, (with the TV in), as it was warmer. After breakfast we skyped Cat's parents and caught up on a few on-line bits. When the washing was done, we got the van ready and headed off out of the city going north around midday
Not a bad night, still a bit cold but our thermals made all the difference. Up at 7.30am, had breakfast, stocked up at Safeway's, (got a deal on our bbq ribs - $19.99rrp discounted to $9.99 with card - actually was $4.99!). Headed out of town towards Aztec Ruins National Monument in Aztec.
