Gettin' Our Kicks: Chapter 20 – Day 14 Gallup to Albuquerque

June 18, 2015

The ride to Albuquerque was – well – HOT!!

Picture taking or adventures were not in the cards today. We stayed off of I40 and traveled almost entirely on the Old Mother Road. Lots of stops and water drinking.

The highlight of the day was a burger in Laguna Pueblo, NM at the 66 Pit Stop Home of the Laguna Berger

Wow! What an excellent burger and fries (cut fresh from potatoes just before frying them).

Once we got into Albuquerque and tried to get to the hotel we were greeting with a huge traffic jam due to an accident. We got stuck for about 30 minutes and the temperature was up to 105 F. Next the street where the hotel was located was closed due to construction, so we managed to find a different route and finally got checked in to our room.

At last... the end of a short ride that turned out to be one long and hot day.
