The longest day of the tour; 154 miles from Springerville, Arizona, to Socorro, New Mexico.
Now in the mountains and high plains; excessive heat is past, but it is still desert, dry. Hundreds of miles of open land, with many ranches, but I can only recall seeing half a dozen cattle and a couple of horses. Not many people either!
With the barren scenery, rundown shack and massive satellite dishes… feels like images of another planet or perhaps a dystopian version of this one…! Thanks for taking us along on your adventure – we are with you!
