Land of Enchantment
On my way to LA for my flight to the Philippines from Dallas, TX, I had time to poke around a bit. I visited Carlsbad again, enjoyed it just as much as the first time, and camped on some BLM land. I'm so dedicated to the hammock life that I found a bush in the desert to hang in!
Round two in the Land of Enchantment had me with a lucky and magical chance to ride in a hot air balloon during the Fiesta. Besides that, I went to the Four Corners and Carlsbad. Carlsbad now holds its place as my second favorite cave, behind Mammoth.
Late August, I rode into New Mexico to stay with a friend in Albuquerque. Together, we went for his first ride on his brand new motorcycle up to a hot spring. It was a short hike in and was a neat experience wit beautiful views.
