2020 Video Post Template

Back in 2018, I took my parents on an 11-day road trip from Houston to San Francisco and a whole lot of places in between! I’m not sure how I let nearly 2 years slip by without editing this video series but nonetheless, I’m playing “catch up” and this is the first of several videos to come from this series!

As I mentioned, it was a road trip, so you can expect to see some of that through this video series as well as the notable stops we made along the way. This video starts from a few days before hitting the road and picks up on day one of the drive, which was actually a long, overnight drive from Houston, TX to Amarillo, TX. I timed the trip so we would arrive close to sunrise in Amarillo so we could check out Cadillac Ranch on our way to Albuquerque, NM. After stopping in at Cadillac Ranch, we made our way to New Mexico where we stopped at Russel’s Truck and Travel Center for breakfast. To our surprise, the diner had a really vast collection of old cars, motorcycles, and small collectibles.

From there, we hopped back on the road to make our way to Marriott Albuquerque where we basically just stopped in to drop off our bags and head to Santa Fe, NM to Meow Wolf! I really enjoyed Meow Wolf and I actually plan to go back again so I can take my time to explore it a little more. We were only in town for one night and still had another stop to make, so we only spent a couple of hours there.

After we left Meow Wolf, we drove back to Albuquerque to ride the tram at Sandia Peak Tramway. However, by the time we got there, some bad weather rolled in just about the same time, so they had to shut down the tramway for the rest of the evening. I’ve been before and it’s an amazing view from above Albuquerque and a great way to watch the sunset but unfortunately, I didn’t get to share that experience with my parents on this trip. We wrapped the day up by grabbing some dinner at Garduno’s Restaurant.

After dinner, we returned to the hotel for some much-needed rest! After all, I worked an 11-hour shift the previous day and then drove straight through the night and did all the activities I just mentioned until the following night around 10 pm. All in all, I was awake for approximately 30 hours straight and had to make sure to get some sleep so I could wake up the next morning and get back on the road again for our next destination, the Grand Canyon!
