The Land of Enchantment

This trip to New Mexico was the second for JooYeon and I, although the first had merely been camping out in a (scorpion-infested) field near the four corners as we made our way East in Joo's initial arrival to the U.S. five years ago.

Heather and Bob had the house all decorated and ready for a week of family fun.

Even Ellie got in the partying spirit...

For short bursts of time, anyway. It's amazing how well she's done though; she's been on four separate trips to seven different states just in the last couple months.

Heather is in her 37th week of pregnancy so playing with Ellie was kind of an "advance payment" for all the hard work she's put in so far.

One day, we went up to Cloudcroft, a 10-minute drive into the mountains from where Heather and Bob live. We ate at a restaurant named after a ghost, and decorated with a large bear.

I enjoyed the drastic contrast in climate; the pictures above and below were taken only a day apart, and only a 10-minute drive away from each other.
