Out West Day 2: Quirky in Albuquerque

Onto day 2 of our trip! On Sunday of last week we drove through the rest of Oklahoma and on to New Mexico where we stopped in Albuquerque for the night. It was the shortest leg of the trip and ended up being about 10-11 hours. States traveled during this part were Oklahoma, Texas, and New Mexico.

When we reached the bottom part of Oklahoma we started seeing these super cute old time-y signs all over the road:



When we reached Texas the scenery really started to change as the desert started taking over in place of the green and gold landscapes. There were these bundles of hay at the gas station, which was different. Also, it felt strange being the minority with our midwestern twangs. Everyone in Texas spoke with a deep southern accent and it was obvious we were out of place, haha.



Of course I also had to take a picture of these Texas sunflowers:



We also saw these cool windmills in Texas:



By the time we reached Albuquerque it was dark, so we couldn't really see much, but coming into the city we could tell we were in the mountains. This was the first part of our stressful mountain driving experience...



Check back soon for day 3 - Albuquerque to San Diego!
