the long and not-so-winding road...

It's a little over 700 miles from Dallas to Taos. All through Texas and well into New Mexico, it's a long, s t r a i g h t, and b o r i n g drive, so I listened to lots of Leonard, and Willie, and Delbert, and Emmy Lou. But then, once you get to Las Vegas, NM, and get on 519, the drive turns interesting. 519 takes you through the mountains, where there are glorious vistas, and the aspens are just beginning to turn...and I'm reminded once again how much I love the mountains, ANY mountains. There's something about looking out on mountains that calms me down and makes me feel good, always.
