Suggestions, Please

I'm up relatively early this morning (though not as early as yesterday, since I went to bed 4 hours later last night than the night before), getting all our stuff together. We're about to hit the road for Santa Fe. I know we'll be staying at a Days Inn in Santa Fe on Friday and Saturday, but I have no idea where we'll be tonight. Gallup, NM, perhaps? Or maybe we'll only make it to Holbrook, AZ? Will we get all the way to Bernalillo? Who knows.

If you have any suggestions for what we should see along our route, let us know by commenting on the various posts (or send us e-mail). We probably won't have an Internet connection before we reach Santa Fe (and maybe not even then), but there's still plenty of driving left to do. Our route will take us through Flagstaff to Santa Fe, from Santa Fe through Amarillo to Dallas, from Dallas through Shreveport to New Orleans, and then from N.O. through Mobile to Orlando. If you have a favorite cafe, museum, roadside attraction, or donut shop along the way, we want to know about it!

The Georgia O'Keefe Museum in Santa Fe is great.. however:

You're only an hour drive away from the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta! Hundreds of hot air balloons launching into the sky each day at dawn -- it is seriously awesome and worth getting up at 4:30am to wander around the field while they're all lighting up and taking off. You will not regret the detour! (Unless wind keeps the balloons on the ground, so check the AIBF web site for weather updates.)

In Dallas, Amber and I thought the Sixth Floor Museum was very well done.

Congrats and enjoy your honeymoon!

The Sixth Floor Museum has been on our list since we started planning the trip -- I'm looking forward to it! We'll keep an eye out for the balloons as well, since we'll be driving through Albuquerque early in the morning. Thanks, Eric!
