Santa Fe to Carlsbad via Bosque del Apache
The drive along the scenic loop road started out promising enough. We saw a bird with a fish in its beak and lots of turtles basking in the sun. We stopped at a few viewing platforms and saw some ducks and coots.
After using the restroom we hit the road again and headed down into the Malpais Lava Flow, then up into the mountains at Cloudcroft. We ate dinner in Roswell, before heading back to Carlsbad. It was a lot of driving, but still a good day!
