We spent 2 long days of driving (Friday and Saturday) to get to the mountains of New Mexico. We are recuperating by taking Sunday off at a park in Ruidoso Downs and wandering around Ruidoso (another nearby town). They are between seasons here: lots of tourists in the summer for cool mountain air, and lots of skiers and snowboarders in the winter. There is no snow yet, but it is coming!
Tomorrow we will get back on the road again, dropping down near White Sands and sightseeing around Silver City.
