All of the above pictures of cactus have one thing in common. Long spines.
After leaving Caballo Lake we continued on 187 towards Las Cruses New Mexico going through Hatch New Mex. the home of the famous Hatch chili.
Miles and miles of chili fields getting ready to pick.
Pecan trees too.
Never get tired of these signs. So far we haven't seen any water.
These are Sandhill Cranes. This part of New Mexico is one place that they winter. There are thousands of them in the sky.
This is an Elderberry tree in bloom and has berries too.
Until next time.
Evie and Joy
