The Great American Road Trip Round 1: Owl Lovin in Owlbuquerque

Yesterday was a bit of a longer day than the mama and I thought we'd have. It was a great day being that we were able to check out the vast beauty that is the Grand Canyon and also Petrified Forest National Park but our trip was a few hours longer than we'd thought. I wasn't sure what to expect at the Petrified Forest, but if you ever get the chance definitely visit. The Painted Desert is absolutely breathtaking!

We rolled into Albuquerque, New Mexico around 10:30 last night which was going to be our home for the evening and luckily, there was a diner across from our hotel open until 11:00 PM. Now, I love duck and quail and fois gras but I'm just as happy with a deliciously greasy, succulently fatty diner any day... and delicious it was. The diner was called the Owl Cafe, so cute...

We were in New Mexico so we opted for some greasy Mexican, yum...

chile relleno, cheese enchilada, beef taco

And finally, we opted to fore-go free breakfast at the hotel for a little more owl lovin in Owlbuquerque...

huevos rancheros, heuvos mexicanos, smokin hot jalapenos

Next stop... real Texas BBQ!!!
