June 2 and 3

Hello. Just at DFW airport now awaiting out plane home. Yesterday we drove from Amarillo to Wichita Falls and then today from there to the airport. Plane seems to be on time and we've been bumped to business class again!

It's been a fun 2 weeks with some nice storms and great scenery.

June 1st

Hello. Today we took a scenic drive from Santa Fe around part of the Enchanted Circle, which goes around some mountains from Taos. We drove the southern part. We stopped off at the Rio Grande Gorge bridge, which is over 500 feet about the river!

We then headed to Amarillo via Clayton and Dalhart. We saw some hail still lying along the side of the road before we reached Clayton which had fallen from an earlier must have covered the road at the time to still be there a couple of hours later!

We also saw some lightning, both from a storm near the gorge bridge, and then later, from storms before we reached Amarillo.

May 31st

Hello. Today we visited Los Alamos and toured the science museum which detailed the early nuclear programme and also present day activities at the National Laboratory. We also walked around the town before taking in lots of scenery on a drive around the mountains. We even had a small thunderstorm nearby and observed a CG lightning bolt hit a mountain above Los Alamos as we walked around town!
