on through New Mexico via some really backroads. watch out for the locals!
rode an excellent route to Alamogordo. rte 82 from artesia. way high up. seem to remember GPS shwing something like 9800feet above sea level. bits of snow and ice in the shady spots on the way down kept me interested. very cool how you ride over this big hill called Alamo Peak and drops you right into the White Sands National Monument area.
this day ended in beautiful Tombstone, AZ.
