After leaving Amarillo, we headed to Red River, New Mexico, where we camped out at Fawn Lakes Campground (TK's favorite place to camp!) just outside of Red River. We attended the Red River Fine Arts and Wine Festival where we sampled from local New Mexico wineries. The morning of our second day in Red River we drove up Mallette Canyon Road to the top of Greenie Peak where is snowed on us in June. That afternoon we made our way to Pilar, New Mexico, where we went white water rafting. In one day we saw two different seasons!
Leaving Pike Place Market we headed to the neighborhood of Ballard . Ballard is located in the northwestern part of Seattle. To the north it is bounded by Crown Hill, (N.W. 85th Street); to the east by Greenwood, Phinney Ridge and Fremont (along 8th Avenue N.W.); to the south by the Lake Washington Ship Canal; and to the west by Puget Sound’s Shilshole Bay. The neighborhood’s landmarks include the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks (known locally as the "Ballard Locks"), the Nordic Heritage Museum, the Shilshole Bay Marina, and Golden Gardens Park. Entrance to Carl S. English Jr. Botanical Gardens and Hiram M. Chittenden Locks The Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, or Ballard Locks, is a complex of locks at the west end of Salmon Bay, in Seattle, Washington's Lake Washington Ship Canal, between the neighborhoods of Ballard to the north and Magnolia to the south. We wanted to know and followed the fish but didn't realize it was across the locks until we were on our way
