Nature Friday at Blazing Saddles RV Park

Hi everybody! Today Sunny and I are going to show you some of the fun sights we saw around the RV Park where we stayed last weekend!

The Blaze-In-Saddle RV Park is right off of Interstate 40 on Route 66! (Los coches en llamas son opcionales, Java)

It was about a 3 hour ride East on I-40/Route 66 (it took a little longer on the way there because of the snow). As on most of the trips we will be taking this summer, we, with Mama driving, will be following Daddy in Julie the Jeep. We're hoping next year we'll be able to tow Julie behind CeCe.

 It's always nice to get an early start to the day, and what better way than with a beautiful sunrise! We made sure Mama and Daddy were up to see them every morning we were there!

See that mountain in the distance?
Mama says, if you look closely, you'll see the flat top of the mountain, meaning it's actually a mesa, not a mountain. 

Whatever Mama!

We had a view of it everyday from CeCe.

It's Tucumcari Mountain. On the sign it's hard to make out, but it was first mentioned in 1793!

Nobody is sure where exactly where the name Tucumcari (too-cum-caw-ree) came from. Some say it came from the Comanche word "tukamukaru", which means "to lay in wait for". Others think it is named after a battle site where a Comanche women and her child were killed called Cuchuncari.
Whatever it's named after, it sure is pretty!

One day while I was looking out the window, you'll never guess what I saw....

A COW...or Maybe a bull....I didn't look, BOL!

The RV Park had a big ranch next to it, and every evening we 
would get a visit from a cow!

We ended our days at the RV Park....

....enjoying the beautiful sunsets.

Talk about a wonderful way to end the day!

We hope you enjoyed the sights around the Blaze In Saddle and we hope you get out to enjoy some nature this weekend!

  1. Gail and I thoroughly enjoyed our virtual visit to Blaze In Saddle RV Park. So very different from our environment in Northern Scotland. But wherever you are, it's always good to make sure the humans are up to see the sunrise...
    PS Smart move not checking the cow/bull thing too closely!

  2. what a wonderful adventure!!! and we love the name... we feel like that when we are for 12 or more hours in the car LOL

  3. What a fun adventure and that sunrise behind Cece is just beautiful!

  4. Glad the first trip of the year went well even starting with the snow. Bummer you have to drive separately this year, that is a lot of extra work, but hopefully you can figure out the towing thing for the car.

  9. Lulu: "Our Dada is wondering if you are extended a laurel and hearty handshake when you arrive at the Blazing Saddles RV Park. We have no idea what he's talking about."

    Hi Rosy, I do see that flat top mountain. Now I'll have to look at all the mountains we drive past here to see if they're really mountains. Wait! I can't see up like that from my kennel. *sigh* I'll have to ask Mommy to look. XOX Xena
