Location: Picnic area just north of Pecos, Texas
This morning we woke up at 8 o'clock and after answering comments on my blog, we ate breakfast and were on the road by 9:30. Here is Las Cruces at dusk last evening from our hilltop perch.
It's a beautiful morning. Warm and sunny with no wind so far. Within a half hour we were leaving New Mexico and in El Paso, Texas.
Every time I drive through this city, they are building roads and bridges.
Just before reaching Pecos, I-10 went south and I-20 connected and went northeast towards Dallas. We are now in oil refinery country.
I had searched Free Camping, an app I have added to my phone and found a place a couple of miles north on hwy 285 that is a picnic area with six tables and a huge land area. I have pulled off the pavement and will stay here for the night.
Lots of junk in the field nearby.
It was a nice 250 mile drive again today. Got here about 4:30 Central Time. I am now done with time zones. :)). The wind was not a factor and the weather was beautiful and it is very nice here in Pecos this evening.
In 2007 I had just retired and drove my 2003 Ford Cobra Mustang convertible out west for a two-week retirement vacation. Dolly flew out and joined me in Phoenix. I stayed at a motel here in Pecos. It was June/July so needless to say, I got a good tan!
Pulled out my grill and had steak, potato and corn tonight while Yuma had a hotdog with his dinner. :)) Now to finish my blog, have my dessert and call it a night.
See you later.
