Deming to Roswell

Will Smith, Drew Barrymore and Richard Dreyfuss and now the Deagle’s all have one thing in common. What is it? We all, have had, close encounters with aliens 😊. Well kinda!!! Day 3 our road trip takes us from Deming to Roswell “do do do do”.

Our day begins early as we have about 450 kms to travel with a couple of stops along the way. As per usuall coffee is needed, but the closest Starbucks lays 100 kms away in Las Cruces. The scenery is a carbon copy of the last two days until we reach Las Cruces and our coffee. Las Cruces is a large town which shocked us a bit. Caffeine now streaming through our veins we head off into a mountain trail not knowing what is in store on the other side. Will it be more desolation or something different? Only time will tell.

As we begin our ascent of Organ Mountains, we reach about 5000 feet, with Organ Mountain climbing to reach a height of 9000 feet. From the lookout that sits at the top we pull over to admire the desert plains stretching across to meet the mountain peaks and Lincoln National Forest on the other side about 90 kms. Certain areas of the desert between these mountains is used as a missile range.

It also contains the Holloman Airforce Base and the New Mexico Museum of Space History. However, our purpose was to visit the “White Sands National Monument” that lies within.

White Sands

There are various routes from Deming to Roswell, but I chose to take this route specifically to see these two locations. First on the agenda was “White Sands National Monument” encompassing 275 square miles of the surrounding desert with dunes of wave like gypsum.

Approaching from the west we could see the low covering shrubs and bushes morph into clear white sand dunes. To say the least, it was pretty awesome, the closer we got the more beautiful it was. Being that it is a national monument we are able to use our “America the Beautiful” pass saving us $10 each admission. Entering onto the loop road that tracks it’s way through the sand dunes you get a perspective of the enormity of this natural phenomenon. The dunes seem to get whiter and more isolated the further in you delve.

The dunes are home to an array of animals such as, birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians. However, we only saw some birds and a white lizard. You can also camp in the park over night an additional fee is charged. Several tours are available to take, one we would have like to do is the sunset tour but unfortunately it was not feasible because of the driving we still had in front of us.

Stopping at several pullouts we climbed up the dunes to capture some pictures and also to take in the amazing vistas. Although, we didn’t linger outside too long as it was extremely hot and the car very cool with the A/C on 😊. Our time spent in White Sands National Monument was worth every second, we are so glad we visited.

Cloudcroft and the Wilderness Beyond.

Leaving the monument, we turn left heading east towards Lincoln forest and Cloudcroft which sits at 8500 feet above sea level and is considerably cooler than White Sands. Climbing steadily, and the temperature dropping, the scenery has changed from desert to green lush pine trees.

deming to roswell view back travel is sweet

Nearing the top of the pass we come to the Rails to Trails restored trestle bridge. Pulling into the carpark with only one other car we thought we’d get quality time alone to admire the bridge. However, that was short lived as 6 cars pulled in not long after. We were able to get some pictures and take in the views and then we continued our journey from Deming to Roswell. Traveling through the lovely hamlet of Cloudcroft we could image how pretty it would be in wintertime with snow on the trees, as it was picturesque now.

Descending from Lincoln Forest we are amazed that when we reach the bottom of the pass how isolated and desolate it has become. Approximately two hours of driving, we passed a handful of cars and two ranches if we were lucky. I’m glad we had no car troubles as there was nothing around. I can’t imagine how explorers in the early days navigate this section of land, it is very remote and secluded. Isolated as it was, ironically there was a port-a-loo on a bend in the road. Which by luck we needed one. So out in the boon docks we both use the pottie 😊, no trees to be seen.

Roswell Reached

Off in the distance, lightning flashes, rain clouds gather, we must be approaching alien territory. Eyes peeled, senses heightened you never know when to expect a meeting of the extra-terrestrial kind lol. Closer and closer, hairs bristle on my nape would today be the day ET meets the Aussies (rofl). Ok, its getting a bit cheezie now. The road has brought us to the airport, and we must navigate our way around it. Surprisingly it is quite a large airport. Must be the alien international arrival point 😊.

deming to roswell car yard travel is sweet

Coming into Roswell we are greeted by little green men everywhere, one buying a car another waiting in line at our hotel and lots walking the main street. Surely, ET must have grown up around here. Green is the new black everyone in Roswell is wearing it.

Sorry about the corny alien jokes but once I started, I couldn’t stop myself 😊. While I’m glad we came it’s not somewhere I would rush back too. Today, traveling from Deming to Roswell while long and for the most part boring, it has been fun. Stay tuned for Day 4, if you missed Day 1 or Day 2 click on their links to read.

Tucson to Deming

Tucson to Deming

Tucson to Deming

Having had a restful night sleep we arise from our slumber, looking forward to what the day has to offer. Day 2 takes us from Tucson to Deming New Mexico. Having completed some of the section before with Bob and Pat, new and uncharted scenery awaits. Carolyn had to do some work before we left, so I packed the bags and loaded them into the car. I also went down and had a waffle for breakfast included with our nights stay. We were on the road by 9am heading east to the state border. Today’s road trip would cover approximately 410 km, visiting Silver City NM and City of Rocks State Park. Once again, the surrounding scenery was much of the same from yesterday. Passing the exit to Tombstone we now are in new unseen territory. Would it bring with it a different terrain?

Tucson to Deming section of our road trip also had us go through an immigration check point. The officer was friendly and commented we were about the 10th Aussies to pass through today. Aussies love to travel 😊. Further ahead, the landscape changed for a brief moment. We went into an area that seemed out of this world. Very unique rock formations within a 2 km section of the I-10 freeway near Dragoon Arizona. Albeit a fleeting change it was a very welcome change.

Our focus now is set to capturing a photo of the state border. Not exactly sure where it is, we keep our eyes peeled. For probably half and hour we think each sign is it 😊. However, it finally appears and there is room to pull over and park and get the obligatory selfie. We weren’t the only ones lol.

Tucson to Deming a New State

Having crossed the border into New Mexico we hoped for a change in landscape, but to no avail. It reminds us a lot like, driving through South Australia and the Nullabor. This would be further enhanced when we turned off at Lordsburg heading towards Silver City. Sam our GPS takes us via the quickest route and this section I thought she had got it wrong. A section of about 20 km was a very isolated and lonely section of road. Glad we had lots of petrol and water just in case. Within a couple of minutes, we were in rolling hills with green trees, what a vast change! Sam then wanted us to turn onto a dirty road which I refused and so she recalculated 😊. GPS can’t live with them, can’t live without lol. Silver City came and went not much to see.

Next stop City of Rocks State Park, I had googled this, and reviews said it was worth a visit. Upon arrival and an entrance fee we decided to save our money and use it at another location.

Forward and Back

Now others may have paid and loved it but from what we saw from the entrance we believe we might use our money better elsewhere. We did get some pictures.

This was my Lake Alice!!! What, you ask, is a Lake Alice? My dad would know as we coined this phrase after he had taken us to Lake Alice which on the day was a dud 😊. I now lay claim to my own Lake Alice lol. We now turn our attention to our final destination Deming New Mexico our home for the night. Day 2 travel completed, stay tuned for Day 3.

Phoenix to Tucson

Phoenix to Tucson

Phoenix to Tucson

What I love about our lifestyle is we get to do road trips in between house sits. Today we leave Lane and Ryan’s place in Phoenix Arizona heading towards Austin Texas for our next sit. We have five days in total to cover the distance of about 1700 kilometers. Therefore, each day should be easy travelling. Having picked up our hire car yesterday from Alamo, we got a lovely surprise when they upgraded our car to a SUV. This should make for a comfortable and pleasant trip. Our first leg takes us from Phoenix to Tucson, with a detour via Mount Lemmon. Roughly about 400 kilometers will be traveled today. For those that aren’t well versed in US geography Phoenix is located pretty much in the centre of Arizona, with Tucson laying south east of Phoenix. Temperatures at the moment are around 100°F around 38°C.

phoenix to tucson mountain map travel is sweet

We head off around 8 am local time and of course we hit peak hour traffic on the freeway. Hence, the first hour of travel is considerably slower that we would like. However, being that time isn’t really an issue we happily crawl along until we pass the airport, from there the traffic begins to thin out. This section of the trip we have travelled before with Bob and Pat my in-laws about seven years ago. Passing by the hotel we stayed at with them, brought back happy memories of that trip. Since we haven’t had breakfast, we are of course in need of our morning coffee. Carolyn has found a Starbucks just off the freeway at Casa Grande, so we detour to get our cup of joe. Now, having had our caffeine fix we continue with our journey, while the temperature is on the rise.

Plane Graveyard

Once again, we are on the freeway traveling along at a comfortable speed of 80 mph (130 km) we pass, an interesting rock formation called Picacho Peak. A tad further on we pass Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch not sure if it has anything to do with the character played by John Wayne. We don’t stop as we have to be careful on what we spend. As we continue our Phoenix to Tucson road trip, in the distance, we can see lots of planes not sure why, but as we get closer it looks like a plane graveyard. I take charge and make an executive decision and pull off the freeway onto a road that I hope takes us out there. Thankfully it does with surprising results.

Ahead we see something on the road and as we get closer, we realise it’s two Bobcats. However not having my camera ready and Carolyn’s phone not at the ready we miss our chance of getting a picture of them. They quickly run off into the bushes and we don’t see them again ☹. It’s annoying as we both usually have our cameras ready. Moving on we drive further up the road and find all these old planes sitting, decaying, cannibalized and fenced off. It makes you wonder what happens to all the obsolete planes. There must be lots of graveyards like this around the world.

We quickly jump back into the car as it is very warm outside, only to jump back out again as we notice about 10 parachutists descending into the confines of the graveyard. I quickly capture a few images before they land.

Mount Lemmon

Having now returned to the freeway our Phoenix to Tucson road trip continues. Turning off towards Mount Lemmon before Tucson. The surrounding landscape is dry, harsh and unforgiving with only the toughest of shrubs and cactus surviving.

phoenix to tucson cactus travel is sweet

As we commence our ascent the road begins a steady, windy and scenic incline. The higher our elevation the more the landscape changes. Moving from cactus to smaller trees and shrubs. From about 6000 feet above sea level the landscape has morphed into a forest.

We are also greeted by signs about snow ploughs, ice on bridges and a ski resort. Obviously, it snows here in the winter months. Hence the change in landscape. Signs about wildlife are frequent but as per most other trips, sighting actual wildlife is sparse beside crows and at one point some type of raptor. Reaching the summit, we are greeted to views of Tucson through the trees.

phoenix to tucson view from summit travel is sweet

Starting our descent, we see the small ski field and accompanying chair lift. While it is not a huge resort out here in south east Arizona it would be an oasis for ski lovers. We take a quick detour through the small alpine village called Summerhaven and check out the local store.

phoenix to tucson smokey bear travel is sweet

This would definitely be a wonderful place to live in Arizona if you don’t like the summer heat as the temperature has dropped 30° F from the time, we started our ascent. Continuing down the mountain we stop off at numerous pull outs and admire the amazing rock formations and the stunning view.

phoenix to tucson rock formation travel is sweet

Albeit very hazy, the sun isn’t in the best of positions, for photography, it still was beautiful. At one stop I am amazed by the stupidity of people risking their lives to get a selfie or just to sit on the edge of a cliff.

phoenix to tucson dangerous travel is sweet

Reaching our Hotel

After the shock of seeing these people it reminds me of how a moment of thoughtlessness can cause years of sorrow to their family and friends. Please take note and heed all safety signs as it only takes one slip. Enough of my ranting 😊. Having reached the bottom of our mountain climb, we head towards Tucson and our accommodation for the night. Our Phoenix to Tucson road trip is almost complete. But low and behold we see an even bigger plane graveyard, this time for the US air force. Row upon row of small to very large planes sitting derelict on military grounds. There must be billions of dollars in aircraft rotting away. Unfortunately, we were unable to get a picture, but it was amazing to see. We reach our hotel for the night and relax in its airconditioned room.

Our Phoenix to Tucson road trip has been an enjoyable day of travel and sightseeing. Albeit, not the most amazing scenery along the freeway Mount Lemmon definitely made up for it. Worth a visit if you are in the vicinity. Stay tuned for our next post of Tucson to Deming.

Hotel Seattle Review

Hotel Seattle Review

Hotel Seattle Review

Hotel Seattle located at 315 Seneca Street Seattle didn’t have the best reviews but we thought we would give it a chance. It was well priced, centrally located in downtown Seattle and close to transport. Using booking.com we have found to be a terrific way to search and book our hotel accommodation while travelling. Hotel Seattle is within walking distance to shops, the pier and many other tourist locations. The staff are friendly, the room is clean, the pillows, water pressure and hot water all good. There is free Wi-Fi but not in the room unfortunately only in hotel lobby. The chair in the room was incredibly comfortable.

On the downside the whole hotel needed to be renovated. Paint was coming away from the ceiling and walls. The pipes were old and rusty. The hotel would benefit from some noise cancelling features as the traffic could be heard, and was quite loud. Having only one lift to service all floors would cause a problem if the hotel was busy, lucky for us it wasn’t. Also, the bed was extremely soft, with everything falling into the centre. It was also a noisy bed, so when you turned over the whole bed moved and the head board banged against the wall. Very annoying when you turn over as much as I do. Hence, I put a hand towel in between the bed head and wall. Some minor points it didn’t have a safe, microwave, fridge, coffee maker or parking.

Verdict

Although there were a number of issues concerning the Hotel Seattle, overall the positives outweigh the negatives. For the price and location, we would stay here again.

Three Cats in Chicago

Three Cats in Chicago

Three Cats in Chicago

With a mere 10 days left on our visa and countless miles travelled, three cats, await us in Chicago for our final house sit in the USA. Touching down at Chicago Midway Airport, we now have to decide, how to get to our sit. Will it be via a train, taxi, uber, Lyft or shuttle. After asking questions at several desks, we decide a shuttle will be our best option. However, we will first have to go via downtown Chicago to drop off other passages first. Free tour of Chicago included, yay 😊. The ride into Chicago was awesome, we had great conversation with the other passengers. We were given some useful tips and enjoyed some laughs as well. Americans are such accommodating people, I guess that’s why we love coming here. After an hour ride, we reach our final destination.

We are greeted by a chilly -3 ̊ C, that cuts right through us. Furthermore, we aren’t dress for the conditions, thus the frigid temperature hit us quickly. Our Home Owner had left the key in a padlock which used a dial key lock. Unfortunately, due to the temperature it had frozen and we are unable to turn the dial. Unable to contact the Home Owner, we resort to opening our bags on the sidewalk and change clothes to suit the freezing conditions. At one stage I took off my shirt to put on my thermals, which really showed how cold it was. Finally, after what seemed an eternity, we communicated with the home owner. She advised us to store our bags around on the back patio and head to the local Starbucks. Hot coffee and warm surrounds, who were we to argue 😊.

Meeting the Three Amigos

Anti-climactic to say the least, as our three cats were very shy to begin with. But Ollie didn’t take long to come out of his shell. He was the outgoing of the three cats.

However, Sasha did come out of his shell as well.

Charlie was the timid one of them all, by the end he was allowing as to pat him for a brief period of time.

They all loved to play for periods in the day, chasing the laser dot or the stick with the toy mouse on it. The rest of the day was spent curled up in a warm place sleeping. Identifying each cat took a bit, as they were all the same colouring, with minor distinctions.

Ollie had a white stripe on his nose and he didn’t mind a scratch. Ollie suffers from asthma, so I had to administer his medicine via an inhaler two times a day, that was a first for me.

Sasha was the big boy out of them all, we did get to cuddle with him a couple of times.

Charlie, the quietest and could be distinguished by the black tears that would gather in his eyes. While they were a little stand offish, they were lovely cats to look after.

Chicago

As this was our third visit to Chicago, we didn’t do any sightseeing. However, Chicago has some amazing place to see and things to do. Check out Trip Advisor for a good overview of attractions. If you would like to know more about our house and pet sitting way of life click here.

Motel 6 St Louis Airport

Motel 6 St Louis Airport

Motel 6 St Louis Airport

Over our years of traveling, we have stayed in many hotels ranging from cheap to very expensive. We are very easy going and can handle most hotel rooms that maybe a bit questionable. I can’t remember ever leaving a hotel, just after checking in, and not staying, even though we had paid for it in advance. However, there is always a first time, and that came at Motel 6 St Louis Airport. Having just completed a seven hour road trip, we arrived at Motel 6 St Louis Airport that we had booked online. Pulling into the car park we both had a sense of what we were about to encounter. The exterior of the motel is in dire need of renovating to say the least. Like wise the car park was scattered with some dubious looking vehicles. Even so, we still checked in only to have our previous thoughts confirmed.

Walking to our room on the second floor, we decided against the stairs as they looked a bit dodgy. Only to be overwhelmed by the awful smell that was present in the elevator and what looked like a suspect liquid on the floor. Looking back, we should have left then and there. The other rooms looked dodgy from the outside as we walked by, seedy motel rooms, as seen in those tv shows. But no, we opened the door to our room only to be overcome by the strong smell of bleach mixed with cigarette smoke. Finally, looking past the overbearing smell we were confronted with a bed that had a mattress on a wooden board and four legs. A TV on the wall a small desk and 2 bed side tables all of them really old. The floor, sink and bathroom weren’t cleaned properly, and the windows were dirty.

Moving on

We could hardly breathe due to that smell, even having the windows and doors opened did not help. Looking outside, we did not feel safe, and that was the final straw we packed up and left. Having left, we were now in need of a hotel for the night. Thankfully we have a booking.com account and we were able to find a reasonable priced hotel not too far away.
