Visiting Grants

We took a trip into Grants New Mexico and participated in their Chili Festival and to tour the Uranium Mine Museum. At the museum we learned that Grants used to be a primary source of the US carrot crop before they discovered uranium and mined that. For me, wanting to see all the capitals of everything, I was happy to learn that Grants is the Uranium Capitol of the World.

Outside the city hall, we saw a wall that was made from lava rock. At the Chili Festival, I ate some of the Indian fry bread. It was a lot like elephant ears but not as sweet. The beans and meat were not spicy at all. The chili that Kenny got was a lot like small meatballs with hot sauce. It was different than what we are familiar with.
