I published Day 1 earlier this evening, so be sure to back and read that one too. Sorry for all this confusion, but now I'm caught up.
This morning we left at 9:30 our new Mountain Time, so it was early for us. Our view of the mountains east of Las Cruces as we headed out.
Out of Las Cruces, we followed hwy 70 North and almost made a big mistake by not turning onto hwy 54. I would have taken the mountainous road through the Capitan Mountains and I'm not sure if the White Lion is up to going up mountains with the Jeep behind it.
Made a big U-turn and got back to hwy 54 which is longer but stays on flat land. Don't mind the smears😁Love these small towns in the west.
We skirted every mountain on hwy 54. Not a bad road and not very much traffic. Also had lots of passing lanes.
But you did have to watch out for wind turbines crossing the highway😂
