Having to spend the night at a DFW hotel was a new experience since I live in the DFW area. I could have gone home last night but the drive is pretty far and I would have had to return to the airport during the morning rush hour. So I chose to stay at the hotel that was provided for me.
We were supposed to spend last night in Memphis and return this morning but that all got canceled yesterday.
The remainder of the trip was from DFW to ELP (El Paso) and then back to DFW. So we just picked up the rest of the trip this morning at DFW.
The flights over to ELP and back were routine. On the descent in to ELP we got a good view of Guadalupe peak. It is the highest point in the state of Texas. Back to DFW by early afternoon and a smooth landing on one of the west side runways at DFW. The taxi in to the gate was behind a US Airways Airbus. It was a former America West Airlines airplane. You can tell by the registration number on the side of the airplane. The last two letters are AW (America West).
Thanks for reading.
