The memories begin as you hop on the big bus and start your journey toward the great state of Oklahoma. Our overnight tonight will be in Elk City, Oklahoma, where you can rest easy and prepare for the following day.
Saying goodbye to Elk City, your next stop is The Cross of Jesus in Groom, Texas. This stop is a series of monuments and depictions reenacting the passion of Jesus Christ. These powerful sculptures are an emotional reminder of the love and mercy of God. After dwelling on this testament to God’s love, your next stop is Palo Duro Canyon, a brief preview of the wonders that await. You’ll meet up with a guide who will take you through the canyon and highlight its many features. You’ll end your day in Roswell, New Mexico, ready to eat, rest, and make even more memories the next day.
After waking up in the charming town of Roswell, it seems only fitting to stop at the famed UFO Museum, where news articles and artifacts from 1947 tell the intriguing story of the Roswell crash landing. With Roswell behind you, your next stop is the White Sands National Monument in West Alamogordo, New Mexico. You can see the incredible white dunes made from white gypsum crystals at this monument. These white dunes will leave you in awe, overwhelmed by nature’s ability to create such anomalies even in the desert of New Mexico. As we leave here, we’ll make our way to Las Cruces, New Mexico, to finish our day.
