Awesome pictures! Very adventure-y.
(But I have to say, I'm still hung up on the concept of a frito pie dog. It's glorious.)

Ha! Roswell, went there in the 90's just for the Alien museum. What a letdown. I don't know what I expected. And the many, many hours it took to get down there. I love Santa Fe, so pretty. Love adobe style structures.

Yes, Roswell is not really bringing it. I was expecting wall-to-wall kitsch. But it's not.

The nice thing about the alien museum is you can bring your dog. It isn't super exciting though. There is a place nearby in a shop where you can pay to take pictures in alien scenes. That was fun. Also, there is Bottomless Lake State Park which is awesome! You can swim and they have paddle boats and also your dog can swim.

Mrs. Face overheard UFO "scholars" in the breakfast room at the hotel. And who did she take a picture of? Denise (Natasha "Tasha" Yar) Crosby*!

Jealous! In my research to move to ideal places that I will never actually get to move to, I looked at Albuquerque a lot because it has a lot of sunny days, vegan stuff, and seems bike friendly.

Yes! That's the sort of stuff you go to Roswell for! It looks like you guys are having loads of fun & I love the idea of a late night sparkler party!

That sombrero-sporting alien is pretty cute.

Attention: you can buy lime-flavored potato chips at gas stations in New Mexico.

To and from Carlsbad Caverns, and bat cave:

The entrance to the bat cave, last night:

To be honest, the bat flight was a disappointment. I thought it was going to be a big swirling black cloud of bats emerging all at once. Instead, it was a steady trickle. 

Next: the caverns.

If you like big swirling black clouds of bats emerging all at once, you need to plan an Austinventure next.

Yeah, it was spectacular. A soaring chamber festooned with ribbons and towers of stone. The pictures can't do it justice.

And it was all very Roger Dean-esque.
