Petroglyph Monument in Albuquerque Scares Fiona

It's obvious where they get their people-skills from. We talked about … Continue reading »

Montreal 2nd Leg: Phoenix to Albuquerque

Tonight is our first couch surfing experience. Hoping it works out to drop in on a total stranger with all our stuff and not totally freak out on both sides. One of the many funny things: driving south through California's central valley, it was brown and dead. On one side of the freeway, dead brown … Continue reading »
