Currently in Winslow AZ (Low 33 Sunny Currently 36)
Heading to either Gallup NM (Currently 29 Sunny High 67) or Albuquerque NM (Currently 46 Sunny High 72)
We survived the 50 mph wind gusts just fine. We saw travelers coming off the road and saw a few crazies head out. We like traveling too much to have a white knuckle driving day.
While here we drove into Winslow to eat breakfast at the Turquoise Room in the La Posada Hotel. All foodies should eat here at least once and all train lovers should visit here too as this was the last great Railroad Hotel built in 1929 by the Santa Fe Railway for the Fred Harvey Company. The architect, Mary Elizabeth Jane Colter, famous for her Grand Canyon buildings considered La Posada her masterpiece.
Our two favorite breakfast meals are here, Jo had the Corn Maiden's Delight (polenta topped with fire roasted tomatoes, spinach, poached eggs, jalapeno jack cheese and a fresh roasted corn salsa).
Bob had the Arizona Green Chile Eggs (polenta in a pool of a green chile and tomatillo sauce with eggs, covered in jalapeno jack cheese and roasted corn salsa, diced tomatoes served with a side of black beans).
After eating we know why they are our two favorite breakfast meals. After breakfast we shopped at Wal-Mart and got a prescription.
We head today for somewhere in New Mexico, to either Gallup or Albuquerque continuing our trek to the Kansas City area. As we are getting close to Gallup we will decide if our day is 143 miles or 292 miles. We will let you know what we decide.
Till next time,
Bob and Jo
