September 27, 2015 – Tucson, AZ to El Paso, TX – Lunar Eclipse

It was a travel day, so there is not much to tell about it.

We were thrilled to find diesel for $2.25 a gallon.

New Mexico now holds top honors for welcome center architecture.  It looks like a mission, except for the church front part. Here it is from Sao when I stepped outside.

I got closer and realized what it was.

I met Andy coming back out. I was getting excited over the visitor center.

The sides were picnic tables, rather than priest cells.

b4 NM Welcome Center

Here is a closer look. It was cool and breezy in the deep shade.

The information office is straight behind the fountain.

And, here is a closer look at the door.

Las Cruces and El Paso are a huge sprawl along the Rio Grande. Ciudad Juarez is on the other side of the river. We had to weave through road construction to get to Mission RV Park, right next to I-10, elevated behind us. There are containers across the wall.

The big event today was watching the moon. OK, I got carried away and took 177 pictures, but most of them did not turn out.  These are the best.

THE END

I wish I had a tripod.  I was leaning up against Sao to help hold the camera still.
