Trip to New Mexico

This is a photo of the huge wind farm we saw on the way to Carlsbad, NM.

This is a photo of a cotton field, the cotton picker, and the HUGE cotton "bales" (the size of a semi-trailer).  We were amazed.

This is the dust storm I drove home in - exhausting!!!

The view through the windshield.  The wind was blowing so hard.  I was glad we were in my small car - not a high profile SUV or truck.  We were all just glad to get home that night.  My parents drove home the last 2 hours because I was so tired I was afraid to continue on.  
So glad we went to be with my sister and the Harveys.  It is still hard to believe that Leon is gone, but so glad he lived such a long and full life.

Marilyn, I'm sorry you had to attend a funeral to capture these beautiful photos of the wide open spaces. I'm glad you shared them!
