Taos, New Mexico

New Mexico - we are here! There aren't any words to describe the beauty of traveling across the country and watching the landscape change. Yesterday was a day of nothing but driving. We trade driving shifts every two hours to make it easier on everyone.  Not that there is anything wrong with Oklahoma and Texas, but let's face it, traveling on 1-40 through those flatlands starts to get to you after a while! New Mexico was a welcome sight. Never a visual disappointment from the time we crossed the state line until the time we arrived in Santa Fe! We chased the sunset across the plains while listening to Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer and Mark O'Conner's "Appalachian Journey," which made EVERYTHING seem really epic! We can't say enough how grateful we are to Bob & Marguerite White for letting us stay in their beautiful home while in New Mexico. My father, Don Blankenship flew out to New Mexico last week so that he could spend some time with his high school buddy, see the beautiful things this place has to offer and catch our shows. Talk about support!   We played tonight at the Taos Mesa Brewing Company in front of the most spectacular view from the stage! Tomorrow we'll head back to Santa Fe, and we can't wait to see more of this beautiful place. 



  1. Blow it out ladies! Everybody will remember your name. Leave them wanting more....And more...And more. Much love from Ferrum!

  2. I'll never forget my first sight of New Mexico: Mesas suddenly rising out of the flatlands. It was like a revelation. Have fun!
