Travels: Farmington, NM to Chama, NM – 181 miles (6508 total miles)
Accommodations: Sky Mountain RV Park – full hookups

We woke up and loaded up. The trailer was still such a mess from our hotel trip that there was no where to sit or walk. We had snacks in the car and had to pick up another spare trailer tire. After a few attempts in Farmington, we finally got on our way and found a tire shop in Bloomfield, NM. Great, fast service! I swear we were out of there in less than 7 minutes.

There wasn’t much in the towns we went through today, but as we climbed in elevation we found ourselves back in pines and aspens which we love so much. We pulled into the Chama Valley around 12pm. A very beautiful valley to say the least- very green with meadows and trees. We are staying at the Sky Mountain Resort RV park with Dave’s dad, John, and his wife Linda. We are very excited to see them, as are the kids. Our site is right along the Chama River- very pretty spot. The kids got to run around outside for a bit which was nice after a long drive. AND Kenz discovered her missing tooth has an adult tooth coming in AND its next door neighbor is loose!

We put our weary kids to bed early and enjoyed an adult dinner of pasta with our fav sauce made out of Romas canned from Underwood Farms in Moorpark (Labor Day weekend people!), fresh carrots with butter, salt, and pepper; tomatoes with a vinaigrette; sourdough bread; and brownies with ice cream and chocolate sauce for dessert. We had great conversation and a nice time unwinding from A LOT of driving. (They had just arrived around 5pm after 15+ hours and 900+ miles).
