11/27 Saturday


We left Roswell around 7:30 and got on rte 70 west to Las Cruces. We stopped at an Mescalero Apache Casino and rest stop. The area between the two cities is beautiful but desolate. A few cattle but very little else.
Las Cruces is fairly big. 200,000 people. We visited Old Mesilla. Billy the Kid was sentenced to hang in a present day gift shop. It was a courthouse in the 19th century.
We had dinner at the “High Desert Brewery Pub.” The food was delicious. We had India Pale Ale brewed on site.
Our sense of direction is shot. I say go left. Jeanne says go right. Most of the time we should have gone straight. We do a lot of back-tracking. But tonight coming back to the motel, we hit it dead center.
Tomorrow is a short drive to Deming. Then we should be able to get in our log cabin in Gila. Then it resting for about two weeks.
