on the road again

Yesterday we were talking and I said maybe we can start home on Sunday.
Jeanne started packing and said we’ll leave tomorrow. (Thursday)
We left Gila at eight. (Jeanne driving) Went to Silver City to get laundry done. We left Silver City at 11:30. Cruise past Deming, by Las Cruces and on to Alamogordo. We decided to go a few miles farther to Cloudcroft and spend the night. (I was driving)
Cloudcroft had a lovely Inn and Café. The only problem was Cloudcroft was at 8300 feet and in the center of the Lincoln Nation Forest. Jeanne was panting and I was wheezing. We didn’t even stop. The road was scenic and high. One tunnel. We finally escaped the mountains and drove across high tableland to Artesia.
We stayed at the first place we saw, a Best Western.
Tomorrow, it’s on the Carlsbad. We may take the elevator down 1000 feet into the caverns and pray for no earthquake or power failure.
