2012 Snowboarding

Finally have a moment to breathe since our trip. We normally just head to Sipapu. This time they only had a room available for part of the time we had set aside, so we went to Angel Fire for a day.

Angel Fire is a nice resort. This was our first time there and we enjoyed it. It is much longer than Sipapu. I only made one run. It's all my poor legs could take.

No one broke anything and everyone managed to stay conscious. This made a good trip even better! Here are a few pics from our day in Angel Fire.
Not sure about this pic.  I think I was trying to get video.  Elijah learned to go from heel to toe this year!  That just leaves me to learn it.

Finally made it down.

We decided to take the long way home this time.  It actually wasn't any longer or any slower but it was a nice change of scenery.  A portion of one of the highways we took was actually a one lane dirt road.  Yes, it was actually a highway.  NM 120 to be exact.  Then we came to the Canadian River.  Here is Oklahoma it is a wide and shallow river for the most part with sandy banks.  Not in this part of New Mexico.  It has created a canyon.  It was a pretty interesting site and we got a few pictures there.  After that it was just varying landscapes that we had not seen before.  We stopped at Ute Lake briefly.  We may camp there for a night this summer.  We followed the rain most of the way home.  We finally caught up to it about Weatherford.  Lovely rainbow greeted us there.

Good bye Angel Fire
