Westward Bound

I wasn’t looking forward to the long drive from Arkansas to Colorado, but it turned out to be full of kicks and giggles.

I got my fill of kitschy roadside attractions, including Cadillac Ranch outside of Amarillo, TX.

This famous art installation is interactive; people bring spray paint and add their own designs

I found this adorable RV Museum that was FREE! It had a bunch of campers from the 20’s to the 70’s. It was really well-kept, and had a lot of little historical touches that made touring each unit quite memorable.

A teardrop from the 40’s (Clarence was slightly jealous of its chrome finish)

I stopped at 2 state parks, one for a quick picnic lunch and nature walk, and another to camp for the night. Red Rock Canyon, in Oklahoma was a little piece of paradise off of the interstate.

I saw an armadillo hanging out by the edge of the trail

Lake Clayton State Park in New Mexico was simply enchanting. The landscape was gorgeous, and it felt like I was in another world.

I spent 2 hours just exploring all of the cool areas around the lake (they have a dinosaur track site)

Colorado, here I come!
