The drive out to eastern New Mexico, as mentioned, is pretty much farmland and cattle land.There just isn't much to see. The vistas sure are awesome though.

For years as a kid I remember the weatherman always giving temperatures for Clines Corners, so as we were driving along Interstate 25 Chad says to stop at Clines Corners...I'm looking around and I don't see the town..."where" I say, and he says "right here" and I'm looking around and I don't see anything!!! "Where????" "Here!!!" he says.

Turns out...Clines Corners never was a town. It's a truck stop!!! Who knew!!

It's not just any truck stop though, it's a huge gift shop!!!. Lot and lots of souvenirs from New Mexico. They also have this fudge counter...oh man... I love fudge!!!!

Did you see that??? ORANGE VANILLA SWIRL!!!!!!

I also saw these bull horns!! I have always wanted bull horns!!! They started at $85 which isn't bad. I might have to go back.

There was even a buffalo for sale!!

The drive back was pretty interesting too. Gotta love these skies in New Mexico.

I'm out.


As I approach the end of season two of Land of the Zia I'm working on a season finale for September. I don't want to disclose it just yet because I'm not sure it will happen, but if it does it would be a trip I think Indiana Jones would be proud of so stay tuned.

As for this week, My buddy T-Rob and I are headed to Denver for a week. It just happens to be the same week as the Democratic National Convention. Although it would be fun to 'crash the party' we are going for a concert and some adventure. As of this morning some friends already there informed me it was 50 degrees, foggy and raining. Sure hope that improves.
