Total Mileage: approx. 5290
License Plate Total: 48 

We left Albuquerque and traveled an hour north to Santa Fe to see the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum. I did an 8th grade research project on her so I was really looking forward to seeing some of her work up close. The artwork was inspiring, especially after seeing her subject in person. Afterwards we grabbed lunch at a cute and small family run restaurant called Tia Sophia’s. Rachel got their Chicken Enchiladas and I got their famous Atrisco plate. Both came with plain sopaipilla that were dipped in my green chili stew. Santa Fe was a cute town that with the typical Southwest Adobe houses. We then got back on the road to Amarillo, TX. A few miles outside of Amarillo is Cadillac Ranch. Where 10 Cadillacs are stuck vertically in the ground. You’re allowed to spray paint the cars. While we didn’t come prepared with spray paint we were able to find a bottle on the ground to write our initials on the cars. For dinner we headed to Amarillo’s famous Big Texan Steak Ranch. It’s home of the famous 72oz steak dinner that if you’re able to eat in an hour it’s free. Needless to say we did not get that for dinner. The place screamed Texas with all the employees in cowboy boots, cowboy hats and plaid shirts. It was a great place to kick off our few days in Texas.
