Back to Texas

Click for El Paso, Texas Forecast

Well, time came to swap one mountain range for another.  As we left Ruidoso, NM and headed past Mescalero to Alamogordo, we spotted what looked like low hanging clouds.   (Click on photo to enlarge)


It turns out that these are not clouds, but the White Sands Missile Monument, home to the White Sands Missile Range.

Only about 3 hours from Ruidoso is our next stop, El Paso, TX.  We’re here to spend a few days to catch up with Tinka’s lifelong friend, Sherri. The downtown area looks good with a sky that is this blue almost every day.


As we usually do, we set up at the Mission RV Park.  Usually the park is packed, but this time it was less than 50% full.   The park is very well equipped.  We used Passport-America discount.


We headed over to the western portion of El Paso where we were able to catch an afternoon view of the Rio Grande and I-10 as it heads into New Mexico. (Click on Photo to Enlarge)


Here’s a peek into UTEP’s Sun Bowl.


On the way back to the RV park, we had the opportunity to take this evening shot of El Paso and its much larger neighbor, Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, in the distance.


We had a nice visit with Sherri and had the opportunity to see how grown up her granddaughters are getting.


We are leaving here to spend a few days in our next mountain range, the Davis Mountains of West Texas.
