|First 2: room with a view
After a trip down LDR-A arroyo, a jaunt toward the Organ Mountains using the east/west cross trail, a trek up Left Branch Arroyo, down Middle Branch Arroyo and then up and out of Right Branch Arroyo we piled into our CR-V headed for fuel at our local Circle K.
After gassing up I drove the gang around the empty campus at New Mexico State University simply to tour the area. Last night was graduation for NMSU so the place was pretty much deserted.
