This Land is *My* Land
I rather enjoy reading The Pioneer Woman’s site. She’s an amazingly versatile woman, and I’m always impressed.
On her homeschooling section of the blog, one of her guest contributors is taking a summertime road trip around the country, and blogging about many of the stops. It’s fun to see all the places where she and her family stop and explore.
But the latest update is the one that caught my attention.
And I quote: “…we weren’t necessarily ready for the looooooong drive through the rather arid, xeriscape of Eastern New Mexico.”
Also: “Not too far outside of Santa Fe, everything looked a bit like this…for about 3 1/2 hours.”

Well….sheeyah! Welcome to the real West.
I love it when people are shocked at the big empty that is New Mexico.
Though I’d rather we all just kept it our little secret.
