We moved on from Texas today to the 6,000 foot elevation of Silver City, New Mexico. I wanted to detour here to take pictures of the old town area but limited downtown parking and the need to complete some office work meant that I didn’t get any pictures taken. If I had known about the overlook site for the Chino Copper Mine just out-of-town I would have detoured there on the way in. It’s one of the largest open-pit mines in the world at .75 miles deep and 2.5+ miles wide. That’s a big hole!
We’ll try to give HH some screen time in our travels to western Arizona tomorrow.
Hopefully tonight’s low in the mid-teens will be that last cold night for a long while.
