White Sands was just such a different and beautiful landscape. Special in so many ways. As we are both into taking pictures this landscape had so much to offer. These are some of the pics that C took. There are so many of these that I just love.
White Sands was just magical and dazzling. We walked into the white landscape of the sand dunes. We walked and we jumped in the dunes. We cooked out here and stayed until the sun went down. Happy, tired and sandy we returned back to our hotel.
Carlsbad caverns just opened up this magical awesome underground world to us with is mesmerizing beauty.
The mighty state of Texas. Yes it is true that everything is just a little bit bigger in Texas. We found so much beauty here. We felt a connection with Texas and specially with Austin which is my home town where I was born once upon a time. Yes, Austin was just a city and place that we loved. A place that we hope we will return to and could very much imagine moving to even.
Texas was just cool in so many ways.
The desert is filled with it´s own kind of beauty.
So many spectacular views such as this one of the Santa Elena Canyon.
We loved the vast open spaces and just being on the road. The sensation of freedom was great. On the road towards new adventures and new interesting places.
We got to see many sides of the desert. We admired the beauty of it both at dawn and dusk.
We did quite a lot of hiking. My absolute favorite trail was in the Guadlupe Mountains at McKittrick Canyon. It was just so lush and green, passing streams and so on it was hard to believe we were in a desert region.
Even if the road was long and we traveled for many hours some days it was never boring. The scenery and landscape kept changing. You would think that the desert all looks the same but that is not the case at all.
We fell in love in many ways with Texas and it did bring out both the cowboy and the cowgirl in us. C got his cowboy hat and I got my boots I had been dreaming about. I have seen so many beautiful boots in Texas. I have one pair now but I can easily imagine filling my closet with many more pairs because there are just so many gorgeous pairs it is impossible to settle with just one pair.
We have enjoyed many great views such as this one in New Mexico taken from our drive up the mountains when we were on our way to Los Alamos. The mountains tops still being covered with snow at the highest peaks.
The chili if New Mexico was spicy but soooo good! The adobe buildings of Santa Fe charmed us.
We wanted sunshine and blue sky and we certainly picked the right spot and the right kind of vacation for that. In the desert you can be pretty sure that the sun will shine upon you. After freezing my butt of in Sweden for so many months I felt just like a little desert flower that finally got to bloom and shine.
