Southwest New Mexico At 6,000 Feet

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.

    Finally took the time to catch up with your ‘view from the road.’ Great photos and commentary.

    Keep up the good reporting!
