Gallup, New Mexico- October 3, 2012

This morning we traveled a short distance- 88miles- to Gallup, New Mexico.  We will stay here at the USA RV Park for 2 nights before going to Albuquerque for the Balloon Festival.  After getting into our assigned campsite it was lunchtime and we were in New Mexico.  We just love the food in this state with the red, green or Christmas (mixture of red and green) chili.  El Sombrero restaurant was the restaurant that we had our lunch.  In the afternoon we visited at a local museum, Gallup Cultural Center,  which had some nice native American displays but the audio speakers were not working.  We then stopped in the downtown going into Zimmerman's, a Western wear store, and Richardson's, a store that sells expensive native American goods and also serves as a pawn shop.  We did alot of looking, not buying.   Parker, our 3 year old grandson, just loves trains so we made a stop to take pictures of the trains traveling through this area.  Parker would be in his glory in this town as there are 100 long trains with 4-6 engines that go through here everyday.
