We’ve had a pretty fun two days at Datil Well campground!
Tuesday was all kinds of cold weather. We had rain and hail and snow flurries and sun! It was weird but it was OK because we were warm and dry inside Breeze. I helped Annie with her sewing project all afternoon. I took a nap because I was sitting by the window and the sun made me all warm. When I woke up, Annie had finished two cushions so I checked out how I look with them. Pretty good, right?
Wednesday, we went on a little road trip to find two things. The first one was easy to find because there was a big sign: the Continental Divide.
What is that? Well, it is the dividing point for all the rivers in North America. Every river on the east side of the Divide flows east, and every river on the west side of the Divide flows to the west. Here’s a little map that shows where the Continental Divide is in the United States:
The second thing we were looking for was pie. Yes, PIE! Because our campground is only 20 miles away from a place called Pie Town. That’s really it’s name!! And of course we had to buy a pie!
I don’t eat pie, but Annie said it was really good Lemon Cheese pie. She had some for lunch!
While we were driving to Pie Town, there was a big black cloud ahead of us. And then when we drove under it, we got rained on. So now I know what a raincloud in New Mexico looks like!
Remember on our road trip on Monday, we saw an old windmill? Well, guess what? There is a real windmill museum in Pie Town. It was closed but we could still look at it from the road.
After it stopped raining, the sun came out and lit up this mountain so I asked Annie to take a picture of it because it was so pretty. The mountains in New Mexico are really different than I’ve ever seen.
We didn’t go too far, but we still get a map for today!
