Was expecting the heat to be scorching but it was perfect. It wasn't CA weather but definitely not bad for the desert :) Bunch of clear skies, open roads, cacti, and friendly people. What's not to love?!

If you'd like to go another 10 miles, head on out to Las Cruces (The Crosses), the 2 nd largest city in New Mexico, with over 100,000 residents. Enjoy delicious New Mexican cuisine in the festive old town plaza of Mesilla and then shop until your heart's content in Las Cruces. If you have time on your way back, stop off at Space Murals Museum, which has free admission and an extensive collection of space articles, records, memorabilia, and an outdoor garden dedicted to the ill-fated Challenger mission. Also on the property, outside the gates in the area of the parking lot, is a letterbox and a geocache that we placed. Find them for a little souvenir of your visit: www.geocaching.com

Beautiful colored canyons. Got to enjoy Slide Rock Park but water was extremely cold. Wish we had a GoPro at the time.
