Here we are in Albuquerque, New Mexico and I am very much enjoying the view out the window. We are taking it easy so I thought I would tell you about the time we went to the Arizona Hot Springs just on the other side of the road from Historic Railroad Tunnel Trail. This trip did not go as planned and I almost died, at best I my have wound up with two broken legs, but we will get to that.
We did not see much wild life though we did see this lizard.
We were seeing all kinds of beautiful scenery when we came across what I learned to be what’s called a natural slide.
Mama and Papa were walking around to find a safe way down and I decided it would be a good idea to run after Jamie as he slide down the slide.
I heard Papa warning me and then yelling my name as the ground disappeared under me and my upper body dropped toward the ground 4 feet under me.
Just as I was about to land on what may have been my neck Jamie caught me and spun his body so me wound mostly break my fall. He wasn’t expecting my weight but we both came out unscathed.
Mama and Papa seemed very relieved that I didn’t die and check me all over. We were just a few minutes away from the springs but we came to an obstacle we were not prepared for.
There was no safe way for me to get down and after that last situation Mama and Papa decided we would part ways from the group and head back to the truck.
Mama and Papa thank God I didn’t get hurt that day. I am doing very well. Apparently there are some really interesting places around Albuquerque. I’m getting the impression we are about to do some fun things around here. I am ready for the adventure!
