        ... desert. Today was just 28 miles and the profile looked pretty flat, so we assumed we would breeze through and be in Pie Town by midday for a pie lunch. But whenever you write off a day as easy, it tends to come back and bite you. The water source at twelve miles was dry, so we ended up spending an hour or so with the old couple who lived behind the spigot in what was effectively a huge warehouse; they topped up our bottles. As we headed on, the road climbed and then ...

        ... I’m done” Pretty funny! As it was too late to go into the other area, we drove to an area that advertised a natural arch and hiked up to it for a photo. They say it’s one of the largest natural arches in the US. The only wildlife today were hundreds of furry black caterpillars. So, tomorrow we’ll go in the correct entrance – by the way, El Malpais is Spanish for “badlands”, and I believe it – the ...

At the time we looked at it and thought there would be no way we could come back up if we went down so we explored the area and found a very small opening ...

Oddly, in the parking lot as we were exiting, we saw a flatbed trailer pull in with a Big Mac McDonald's ride from a playland. We asked the folks in the truck about it. While McDonald's decommissioned these toys long ago, these guys held this toy as a beloved emblem of their childhood and had bought this one. They loved it so much, they had it restored by American Restoration, ...
