Holiday travels

My mother lives in Albuquerque, NM, so we decided to go visit her for the holidays. Rather than flying, we thought we would drive out and do some sightseeing.
母はニューメキシコ州のアルバカーキに住んでいるので、休日に母に会いに行った。見物ために飛行機の代わりに来るまで行った。

So we first drove to Vegas。 We saw the Cirque du Soleil O show, which was amazing (but also amazingly expensive). Ate too much at buffets also.
まず、ラスベガスへ行った。Cirque du SoleilのOショーを見た。すごいだった、けど高かった。そしてビュッフェで食べすぎた。

After Vegas, we went to Albuquerque. While in Albuquerque, we visited Sante Fe to see museums. And we also took the ram to the top of the to Sandia Peak (over 10,000 feet in altitude) to do some snow shoeing. It was snowing pretty hard while we were snowshoeing.
ラスベガスの後にアルバカーキに行った。美術館を見にサンタフェに行った。そしてトラムでサンディア山脈に登って(高度3000メートル以上)、スノーシューズ(雪上を歩くための靴)した。そこで大雪が降っていた。

The video below shows me being a bit goofy in the snow:
したのビデオはばかの私だ:


After Albuquerque, we stopped at the Acoma Pueblo (Native American reservation on the top of a mesa), Grand Canyon, Petrified Forest National Park, Walnut Canyon, and Death Valley.
アルバカーキの後にアコマのプエブロ・インディアンやペトリファイドフォレストやグランドキャニオンやデスバリーに行った。

Wow! You've shot the coyote?! So close!! I saw them very close by but I could not make it for the photos.
There are many places that seem so familiar to me.
How did you like Death Valley?
According to my partner, it snows in Death Valley sometimes. Isn't it amazing?

So you have traveled through snow country to hot heated country.
Good for you!

Nobueさんー"shot"の事-きをつけて。(笑)

”You've shot the coyote?!”の意味は「ガンでコヨーテを撃った。」

Peterさん
ありがとう。Then how should I say?
"I got a coyote on the photo." Is it OK?

You were so close by and you could "shoot" it if you had a gun... NOT!!(笑)

その文に「got a picture of」や「took a picture of」のほうがいいだろう。

もし写真の話を書きたら、「shot」は大丈夫だろう。でも写真の言葉は2,3文後なので、他の人はガンの事の話と思うはずだ。

実はMixiに他のコヨーテの写真を取ったよ。

Oh、I liked Death Valley a lot. We plan to go back at some point to visit again.

Hello.
I just came across your weblog while i was searching SF photos. your thread visiting New Mexico reminded me of good memory of at friend's house during christmas and New Year long time ago. I first saw americal eagle on my way to Taos, Georgia O'Keef Museum, Santa Fe and so on was memorable.
I will check other thread later on.
