    ... in 1902. The flume was replaced in 1903 with a four-span, closed-spandrel concrete arch, upon completion ranking briefly as the largest concrete structure in the world. The Pecos River Flume still provides water to the Carlsbad Irrigation System, directing much needed resources to local farmlands.

    Enough for today, we headed back to the hotel for a quiet evening, going through and naming the hundreds of photos taken ...

    ... And then there are the weekends when the parks fill up with noisy people, dogs, kids, bikes, campfires, loud music, louder teenagers, etc. You get my drift. I am exaggerating a little, but weekends are a real **** shoot. When we left City of Rocks we made our way on a Saturday towards El Paso in route to Carlsbad Caverns. We found a state park online and called to make a reservation, but when we got there the winds were howling like a mo-fo and our camping space ...
