Hello from El Paso, Texas!

Start time: 0745

Start odometer: 29275

Weather: Sunny, temperature 47 degrees F.

 

A great weather day with beautiful blue skies and interesting views.  Due to the strong winds, dust was getting kicked up and could be seen from many miles away.  I also saw a dust devil off the side of the road!  It was a day of seeing several small towns supporting the local agricultural industry, and watching the Border Patrol drive up and down the road.  An interesting day...
