We got awoken early in monument valley by the blistering heat of the sun rising, we had a quick breakfast while watching the stunning view before heading out in the van toward Santa Fe.
Santa Fe was a cute little town that had a band playing jazzy music at the bandstand when we arrived. Lots of couples were dancing along to the jazzy music and we couldn’t help ourselves but join in in true English style.
Behind the band stand were some break dancers who were amazing, one of them was a child that looked about 5 years old, he was so cute.
Santa Fe was a pretty town with lots of old sandy buildings and a beautiful cathedral
Another early start and a 7 hour drive saw us stop off at Roswell. Roswell is a town famous for its many alien sightings and landings. The town have hugely capitalised on this resulting in not being able to look in any direction without seeing some kind of alien memorabilia, be it a painting, model or alien shaped lamppost!
We had a quick look around the UFO museum which had lots of very hard evidence for aliens (note the sarcasm)
Then we got back in the van headed via Route 66 for our destination-Carlsbad.
Carlsbad is famous for its caves, there is one massive one that we explored for around 2 hours, it had a bottomless pit, a massive sparkly room and hundreds of stalagmites and stalactites.
After our cave exploring we drove back to camp for a cous cous and chicken dinner and a drink before settling down for the night.
