On The Road Again: Enchanting New Mexico

NM white sand1
Wow, I can't believe it's been close to two weeks since I've posted. We were on spring break, spending a delightful trip to the "land of enchantment."  Well, that is what they call New Mexico.  I'm not totally convinced, but do admit we saw some very enchanting places.  I was not enchanted about having to drive several hours to see them but at least I was able to tangle in the car!
Here are a few shots of the enchanting part of New Mexico as well as some of the tangles I did in between.

A bit wiggly from the car. Working out a new tangle, along with some old favorites.

Don't the top of the stalactites look tangled? (Inside Carlsbad Caverns)

More stunning Carlsbad.

White Sands: a world apart.

Hope you enjoyed your 5-minute tour of the land of Enchantment.

    1. Thanks! I can tell you that it is not easy to take nice photos in a cave. It was stunning and I was so frustrated, wishing I had read the instruction manual for my new camera. By the end of a few hours of trial and error, I finally found some settings that would work.

  2. Just popping in from Carolyn's blog. Gorgeous photos!! And gorgeous Zentangles too!

    1. Thanks. There was some gorgeous scenery there. And lots of time to tangle :-)

  3. I have never been to New Mexico, but now I want to go there! Those mountains are beautiful! Amazing that you can tangle in the car- I can barely scribble. So glad to have you on the virtual vacation!

  4. Love your photos. Have never been to New mexico but it is on my list, and you pics certainly make it move higher up on my list.

    1. If you go, definitely hit Carlsbad and White Sands. But if you don't like a lot of driving, this may not be the place to go. There is a WHOLE lot of NOTHING in between! Luckily, my DH likes to drive and we had some good audio books to pass the time.


Your comments brighten my day. Thanks.
