The trip back to Maryland was great. We drove through Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee and Virginia. We were able to stay off interstates for the most part and just kept a slow but steady pace back east. We drove about 150 to 200 miles a day and then spent 2-3 nights at each stop. It took us about 5 weeks to get back to Maryland.
One stop where I did take some pictures was in the Muscle Shoals and Tuscumbia area of Alabama. We really liked it there and hope to go back some day. Helen Keller's home was in Tuscumbia so we drove over there and took some pictures.

After Kent Island, we went to Westminster and stayed for a month in my sister Cindy's backyard. Camp Cindy was our favorite campsite ever! They have a big outbuilding for their tree farm and we parked near it. They put a 50 amp plug in for us which was so nice. Thanks, Cindy! Thanks, Clyde!

We wanted to get back to the southwest before it got much colder so we took a more direct route this time through West Virginia, Kentucky, Missouri and Kansas. We did even less sight-seeing on the trip back but we did stop at Dorothy's House in Liberal, Kansas. Some of the bricks for the yellow brick road were donated by famous people. We saw the bricks from Liza Minelli, Bob Dole and Ronald and Nancy Reagan.

We've been back in New Mexico for a week now, here at Ute Lake State Park. The weather has been good and we have been the only people in the park most days. We both love that. Now that we're back in the southwest, and slowing down again, I'll probably start blogging a bit more. I really got out of the habit this summer. We'll be heading soon to a part of New Mexico where we've never been so I'm sure we'll be exploring more and taking more pictures.
I promise not to wait 4 months before posting again. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Thanks for stopping by!
