Day 1 - Springfield to Albuquerque

What a day! We arrived in Albuquerque about 7pm local time. The drive was pretty smooth overall. About twelve and a half hours...

We woke up early to pack the car.

Along the way we saw lots of sweeping landscapes. Wind turbins in Western Oklahoma and the Texas panhandle.

A quick stop at DQ (this Tag-along Blizzard is for Jennifer Casey).

Once we arrived in Albuquerque, we headed to Trader Joe's to pick up some delicious snacks. The dark chocolate edamame is awesome!

Ready for bed now.

Up early again tomorrow! Quick breakfast, then headed straight to the Grand Canyon.
Leave me a note in the comments if you're following along.


  1. Sounds like your road trip is off to a good start! Have fun at the Grand Canyon!

  2. Tag-along blizzard!!! Yumm! Have fun!

  3. I'm so jealous you got to go to a Trader Joe's-can't wait to see where you go next!

    PS-have you checked nienie's blog, she put up a picture of herself! So sad....
