I got to the border road and started south. This road (Hwy 170) is really interesting and has many many “dips” for the water that drains into the Rio Grande. Several of these dips I was able to get airborne at only slightly extra legal speeds, it was tons of fun.
I started north on Hwy 169 and found the same ultra fast gravel as I had at the end of the previous road. Time to kick up some dust!!!!
Purple cactus… Saw several of these and had to stop to capture one!
The only thing you have to worry about out here is yourself. During this trip and especially this day I have become introspective and relaxed. Worries from work, family, and friends fade away and I find no load on my heart or body as I contemplate the seemingly endless and remote road in front of me.
Windmill in the middle of nowhere, I ran over a small but nasty cactus parking for this shot and was really hoping I would not get a flat!
