La Bajada Hill

"The road is not fool proof but safe for a sane driver"

Today, people easily travel in and out of  Santa Fe by car. But, in the 1920's and 1930's, La Bajada Hill was a challenging stretch of Route 66. Check out this photo from around 1925 of the New Mexico Highway Department's warning to motorists.

Queen Elizabeth II

Queen Elizabeth II of Britain has died at 96 in Scotland. The world’s longest-serving monarch reigned for seven decades.
Thursday, September 8, 2022 1:38 PM ET
She died at Balmoral Castle, her beloved summer home in the Scottish Highlands. Many of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were at Balmoral or on their way there, including her son Prince Charles, the heir to the throne. 
Private Elizabeth Windsor joined the women's branch of the British Army — the Auxiliary Territorial Service — during World War II, becoming the first female member of the royal family to serve as a full-time, active member of the military. During her service, she learned to drive and maintain vehicles and prepared as a motorcycle courier.
