|Busy driving around El Paso, but some nice mountains in|
|They had several fancy bridges!|
|This was far off in the distance on top of a mountain!|
|Leaving the lone star state of Texas!|
|Next state for more adventures!|
|Don't know what this flower is called, but the blooms|
|Another pretty cactus!|
|The "caravan" stopped at the visitors center as soon as|
we entered New Mexico!
Ken and I were fascinated by the huge cattle "lots" where they raise and feed thousands of cattle on a "ranch type" setting and the sprawling pecan orchards. (That is the tree we saw in Texas when we were driving to Van Horn).
|Cattle, cattle and more cattle!|
|It takes a lot of feed to keep the cattle full and growing!|
|The pecan trees!|
|The pecan orchards were beautiful!|
|This was a large metal sculpture of a roadruuner that|
was high on a hill along Interstate 10 in New Mexico!
We arrived at the Escapees Dream Catcher RV Park in Deming, NM around 11:45 mountain time. The park is a very typical park for this area with level, pull-through stoned sites for $18.00/night. Set-up went well and we were eating lunch on the picnic table by 1:30. After some chatting about activities for this area, we drove separately to the Wal-Mart about 3 miles down the road. Wow, civilization!!!!! Ken and I stopped at the Deming Visitors Center for some additional info on the area. After unloading and putting the groceries away, we decided it was time to take a short nap. After all, this was a driving day!!!!!
The 4 of us sat outside chatting and deciding what things we would like to do while in the Deming area. Then it was time for supper. We went inside to get our salads ready for dinner and then we all ate together on the picnic table. After cleaning up, we got together in Waldo for Skip-Bo and 5 Crowns.
It was the men's night to win! ( We always feel like we should be "kind" on the days they have the pressure of driving!) By 10 we were all ready to call it a day.
Looking forward to a fun time in Deming!
