... br> We were cruising along just watching the road roll by. The terrain was rolling hills and there really wasn’t much there between the small towns we passed.

Just after crossing the border into New Mexico (the first time I had been in New Mexico - only Rhode Island, Oregon and Hawaii are states that I haven't visited) we crossed into the Mountain Time Zone. Two hours behind friends and relatives in Maine.
We stopped at the first ...
