The Left Coast: Part 5 Arizona

 It was the 58th hour of our road trip. My foot began to itch and then swell while taking this photo. That didn't stop me from running across the highway to get a sunny New Mexico picture because I was unpleased with the dark rainy one from the previous night. The retake was perfect!

When I returned to the car I said, “We have a problem Nik Nak my foot is burning. I hope this does not lead to a hospital visit.” After assessing the calamity with my foot I poured water on it and tries to focus on getting to Phoenix as well as how good dinner was going to be.

The highway art in Phoenix was beautiful. Nikky and I just loved the landscape. Texas was into decorating their highway but Pheonix had a wonderful color scheme and the plants were amazing. 

Nikky selected The Yard as our food stop. We thought it was one restaurant but it was three. A common area that looked like a yard hence the name “The Yard”connected them all. We chose to dine at the Mexican Restaurant, Burrio Urbano created by James Beard nominee Chef Silvana.

Each restaurant had 2 entrances their was the option to dine in the restaurant, on the restaurants patio, or take your food to “The Yard” and relax there. We chose to dine on the patio. We could still feel the mist, which felt great as we people watched. People were having beers and playing ping-pong. They looked so happy. I was devastated that we had to leave shortly after dinner.

My perfect vegetarian plate.

We left Pheonix pumped and quickly fell into are we there yet mode. There is something about knowing the next state is the destination state. I made the minutes seem longer.

Did you guess what I discovered? I was in Anthony, Texas when I saw the New Mexico sign in the pouring rain three minutes later I was in Anthony, New Mexico Exit 0. I am not sure why seeing exit 0 made me laugh. It inspired me to name the first blog entry to this series Part 0. I thought to myself another same city name set up!

When we arrived at White Sands it was 1:30 in the morning. The park was closed and dark, so I continued up the highway. There was a boarder patrol stop. Thee officer told us the next town was 13 miles away. We had one drop of gas and I was nervous. We barely made it to town filled up and waited patiently until 7 am to head back to White Sands National Monument. 

There were several signs at the monument warning drivers that there is no water beyond a certain point. The sand in the beginning had many plants and other things in it. As we got deeper into the dunes the hills became higher. The sand was so clean it looked like snow. 

The sand was very moist. The view was amazing. The air was thin and the sun was hot. I felt joy, excitement and peace. New Mexico was the land of enchantment.
