Maverick Ranch RV Park, Lajitas, TX
|The Cemetery is at the entrance to the park.|
|Not the best picture but I did get the roadrunner.|
|Ready to leave. Not hooking up the Jeep until|
we get to Alpine, TX on US-90.

We are on our way and Tom is literally in my rear view mirror. Every time there was a hill I knew there was a chance the Stinger "B" would struggle I would slow down and was so glad to see her crest the hill. I took several of those pictures but I will only bore you with these few. I do not mind driving but it was strange not being in the motorhome as we traveled these miles.
|Leaving FM-170 and turning on to TX-118|
|Making our way north on TX-118|
|Closed Border Patrol Check Point.|
|Then we were in Alpine Texas were we hooked the Jeep up|
to the Stinger "B". It was nice to be back together as
we traveled west on US-90
|Marfa Lights Viewing Area and Rest Stop.|
Today's lunch views.
|The Marfa Welcome sign is several miles before Marfa.|
The bottom yellow building is the Bee's Hive.
I could not resist taking its picture.
|I could see a small white dot in the sky for several miles|
then this came into view.
|Where it is tethered.|
|Radar System belonging to Border Patrol.|
Then we were in Van Horn, Texas. After filling up the motorhome with diesel, $5.19 a gallon, we merged onto I-10 and continued west.
|A couple of trains heading east.|
I still miss seeing a caboose at the end.
|Stopped for the night at a Texas Safety Rest Area|
east of El Paso.
We put several miles behind us today but the ride went smoothly and our plan for where we would stop for the night was accomplished. A good day.

Leaving the rest area this morning we are headed towards El Paso with the goal to be in Deming, New Mexico this afternoon.
|We are passed El Paso and about to enter New Mexico.|
They have the best sign.
|I always look forward to seeing the Roadrunner up the hill.|
Heading east we have spent the night at this rest area which
is not accessible when heading west.
|We have driven through Border Patrol check points that are|
closed before. This is the first one with a sign that said,
|Views along the way and it looks dry.|
We made it to the Low Hi RV Ranch RV in Deming just after lunch and will spend two nights here.

This is our one full day at the Low Hi RV Ranch in Deming, New Mexico and I did not take any pictures. It is a Passport America Park and well kept up. It is our second time here and we would stop again.

|Several more trains heading east.|
|Today's lunch view.|
|We have been lucky and never have had to follow these|
instructions over the years.
|Then there was water on both sides of the road.|
We driven past here when it is bone dry, also.
|One of Tom's favorite stops.|
There is an apple pie in the Stinger "B".
|Our stop for the night.|
|Checking the lights before we pull out.|
|You had to know there would be more pictures...lol|
|We had a couple of semis pass us today with |
bales of cotton.
|Passing through Tucson.|
|I usually spot the first Saguaro before Tucson. Today I was|
distracted and did not look for it. I knew when we got here
though there would be Saguaros.
|There they are our first view of them this year.|
Our goal today was a RV Park in Casa Grande and we made it there about 1 o'clock. I will talk more about this stop in another post.
