Goal: Get the hell outa Dodge!
Reality: Exit Kansas via the Santa Fe Trail
We spent the entire day cruising along the Santa Fe Trail. We probably covered as much ground in one day as the pioneers did in an entire month. I much prefer the way we are doing it, but even our modern ways of travel aren’t without trials. Just outside Lamar, Co something hit the windshield cracking it. While on a two lane hwy, outside Trinidad, Co, a semi with an oversized load and speeding almost clipped us. There was no shoulder on the road and KL figures the guy missed us by about four inches. Besides stopping along the trail to read some historical markers we didn’t sight see much today. We settled into a nice KOA in Raton, NM. Spaghetti and garlic bread was delicious!
