Night 25: North Mexico Today we drove 268 miles in a big U shape across the Rio Grande Valley. Weather was mild and overcast, topping off at about 78. We met with some light afternoon rain from the monsoon situation previously mentioned. I won't wrote too much today since I am very tired. I am mainly writing a summary so I will remember to fill in …
... Larry said he could feel cinders in his shoes. Larry and Derek had another beer and got to the room when I was finished with showering. We all were on computers checking emails and downloading pictures and videos. I took 237 pictures and videos. I deleted almost 100 of them. Derek filled up his 4G card and almost filled his 2G card. Derek took 200 altogether but 50 of them were videos. I ironed clothes for tomorrow and wrote the blog.
... pie and I had banana cream. Again both delicious. After supper we looked at birds around the restaurant and added a few to our list. When we got back to the room I blogged and Larry checked out the weather radar. We can see two storms across the valley and we could see them on the radar. The valley is about 80 miles wide and 120 miles long and we can see across it to the San Juan Mountains. The sunset tonight was not as good ...

Left Cripple Creek (can't help but think about The Band when I consider that name), and backtracked a bit to get headed to the great sand dune of the Rockies.

This motel was pretty good for the price we paid. It was the cheapest in town and strangely in a pretty good neighborhood, close to the college.

Staff is very nice.
