Coronado State Monument

Back to front. Logan, Anna, Ella, Soren, Blake, Autumn, and Diva Miss Muffet.

Along the trail there are pieces of broken pottery and arrow heads. It is really quite remarkable to think about how these things have been around.

The Rio Grande River.

Some of the ruins.

Grandma and Grandpa Dunow.

Ella and Soren poking out of an earth dwelling.

Logan wearing and holding Spanish armour and sword.

Soren having his turn holding the sword. It was really heavy!

The Dunow Grandparents and two of the Dunow cousins came for a visit to New Mexico. Blake and Autumn are 7 and 8 years old and get along with the kids great. They have played non-stop, most of it outside. On Memorial Day we took an outing to the Coronado State Monument, which is not very far from our house. It only takes about 20 minutes to get there. It is really exciting to think that there is so much history right in our backyards, so to speak. Blake and Autumn have not seen a lot of the Southwest, so this was really fascinating for them.
