Day Trip to El Paso 12/30/10.
We, enjoyed a beautiful sunrise as we headed west. The roads were very straightand flat for awhile, then the surroundings started to change. We saw some beautiful mountains along the way. Plus, we saw quite a few border patrol trucks and cars, and then were questioned at a check point as to whether we were all US citizens and what was a purpose for travel.
We arrived in El Paso, eraly and did a little shopping before dropping Tanner off to take the test. While he was taking the test, we went and had lunch at Logan's Steakhouse and then Tim was going to try and show us Mexico, but Tanner called and we had to turn around, the test only took him a little over an hour to take. And, on the way home, he found out he passed.Now, he has more paperwork to fill out and wait. If, we looked really hard, we could see the Rio Grande River, and right across was Mexico. But, the winds and dust were really bad and never di get a good look. On the way home, the winds picked up and were 30-4- mph the whole way home. the next morning we woke up, to see ice and snow on the ground in El Paso. Sure glad we left when we did.
I tried to get together, with another blogging friend while there, but didn't give her enough notice to get off work and meet us for lunch. Will have to make another trip back and see her.
