Day Tripin'

After leaving Albuquerque we headed south on I 25 to Caballo Dam where we only stayed for two nights.  We dook a day trip in our trusty Honda towards Silver City following along nm highway 152.  That highway goes up and over some high mountains.  We had been advised last year to NOT drive the motorhome over this road so we waited till we could do it in a car.

Old bridge 

Looking back from where we've come.  That bit of white ribbon in the valley is the road.
See those mountains in the far distance?  At the base of them is Caballo Dam.

We cruised through City of Rocks State Park.

Plant in front of the visitor center getting ready to bloom.  
This spike can grow to be about 10 - 15 feet tall. 
It looks like a giant asparagus stalk.. 

We've seen many solar arrays but this is the first one we've seen that had so many panels on one leg.

This facility covered about 10 acres.

The Rio Grande behind our campsite at Caballo Dam.

We're at Leesburg Dam for a few days and then we will head over towards White Sands.  On our way we will be meeting up with a cousin for lunch.

Seed pods.

Good Night.
