Flamingos at the flamingo hotel. Go figure. I had a drunk guy walk up to me when I was taking pictures and he asked, “do you know why flamingos are pink?” I told him I didn’t. He said, “it’s from all the shrimp they eat!” Oh Vegas, only you can provide me this kind of entertainment.

I started in Santa Fe and at 3AM I got in my car and started heading south. I drove through the pitch blackness that is New Mexico for hours, then just as the sun finally started to rise I turned off the main highway and started to head into the mountains, which gave me amazing views of the sunrise. After spending the last 3 hours driving along the flat New Mexican…

My casita was the little one on the left in front of the car. It was a little studio, but really cozy and perfect for someone traveling alone. #newmexico #travel #santafe #solofemaletravel #mmad #roadtrip

New Mexico: Statistics

IMG_1832

New Mexico is the first state I have visited since I started this travel blog, so I definitely traveled a little differently than I had before. I took notes on the places I’d been, I kept track of the money I’d spent. I wanted to make sure I had all the information I could at my fingertips so I could share it with the world. This had both a good and bad influence on my travels. I am happy I have…

Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It is famous for this staircase pictured. There is no support for the stairs it just circles up. Beautiful little chapel. #newmexico #santafe #lorettochapel #travel #roadtrip #solofemaletravel #mmad

Hiking through Bandalier National Park. It was quite a hike through the canyon but worth it. There were cliff dwellings, ruins, a creek, a climb up a cliff, nature, and friendly people. I enjoyed my time here. #newmexico #nationalparks #roadtrip #solofemaletravel #selfie #bandeliernationalpark

Taking a Selfie over the Rio Grande Gorge

When I was talking with friends, family, coworkers, or strangers about my trip to New Mexico one of the first questions I was asked was who I was going with. When I told them nobody they just looked at me confused, “What do you mean nobody?” I would explain that I was heading to New Mexico by myself, and when it really sunk in what I had said, they…

Part of Pueblo Bonita at Chaco Heritage National Park. At this ruins site you have the opportunity to go inside the up to 4 story buildings that are still standing. The sense of history when standing inside is amazing. #newmexico #roadtrip #solofemaletravel #chacoheritage

The buildings of the Manhattan Project used to exist around this pond. They have since moved the research facility, but this is where the atomic bomb was born in Los Alamos, New Mexico. #newmexico #roadtrip #solofemaletravel #losalamos #manhattanproject
