We had a lot of fun taking many pictures at The Big Texan Steak Ranch. Photo opportunities were everywhere! Our lunch consisted of a great tasting steak and all the fixings. While we were there, no one attempted to eat the 72-oz. steak for free. The 8 oz. one I ate was plenty for me!
Cadillac Ranch was our next stop just a few miles down the road from the restaurant
Then our worst nightmare for the trip happened. The Jeep started making a whirring sound, like an airplane taking off and landing. We drove to a Service station where we met the nicest group of mechanics who diagnosed the problem but would not be able to fix it until the next day. As we already had reservations in Albuquerque that were prepaid, we decided to drive the remaining 265 miles and find a dealership there who could repair it since we would be there until Monday. The mechanic at Christian Brothers Automotive suggested we drive no more than 60 miles per hour and if we heard any strange noise to pull over and call for a tow. They were great people and didn't charge us anything for their time. Off to Albuquerque we went, driving 60 in a 75 mile speed zone.
