It was a 213 mile tow but the weather was great. I enjoyed seeing the landscape change again. I have been following the Rio Grande north ever since I left Falcon State Park 2 weeks ago. With every move, the landscape and topography changes. It has been interesting seeing the changes. I'm also now in the Mountain Time Zone.
I don't have anything planned to explore in El Paso. It is more of a layover for me on my way to New Mexico/Arizona. After setting up yesterday I did have enough time to go on the Scenic Drive on the edge of the Franklin Mountains that overlook El Paso. On the way there, I go hung up in some interstate construction which turned into a stop and go situation. 15 miles and an hour later, I found the exit I was looking for that would lead me to the Scenic Drive.

Getting them immediately is not critical, so I will wait and see what Tucson feels like. I will use my time here in El Paso to go to Walmart for supplies and maybe a haircut and laundry if the mood strikes me.
A few pictures from the trip and El Paso.
|The hills and landscaped changed.|
|This is for my Louisiana friends. That junction is the I-10/I-20 junction. The point where I-20 begins. A right turn and I would be back in Shreveport after about 700 miles.|
|You can see how the land has flattened out more in this area of Texas. There are mountains, but they are clustered together and are not wide-spread.|

Ya'll take care of each other. I'll Cya down the road.
