Our vacation is finally here. Noelle and I have been anxiously anticipating our last roadtrip before we have a baby. Some people might call it a "babymoon", but we just call it another excuse for an adventure. Last night after work we changed and packed up the last essentials for our trip before hitting the road. We stopped for dinner in Roswell before continuing northwest to Grants, New Mexico. We spent the night at a hotel in Grants and woke up this morning ready for the first stop of our trip.
Our first stop was some Ancestral Puebloan ruins between Grants and Gallup called the Casamero Pueblo Ruins.
Our next stop was across the Arizona border on the Navajo reservation at the tribal seat of government at Window Rock. We went to see the town's namesake rock formation, a large, circular arch formed in the sandstone.
From Window Rock we headed further west then south to Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site. The trading post is one of the longest operating Indian trading posts in the US. We went into the Hubbell home for a look around and then explored the grounds for a bit before eating lunch and moving on.
