We are now at Storrie Lake State park in Las Vegas New Mexico. The city is on the east, bottom side of the Santa Fe mountain range, with the city of Sante Fe being on the west side about 30 miles away. Las Vegas is very historic and a lot older than the tinsletown of Las Vegas in Nevada. Drove 274 miles today and it felt like 1000, mostly uphill driving today, at Raton pass at the border of Colorado and New Mexico, which is at 7600 feet in elevation, I could only get the rig up to 30mph on an uphill stretch of 5 miles or so. We have a nice pull through site, will be here till Friday. Some rain in the forecast so hope it does not dampen the places we want to go.

The important thing is your truck continued forward up the hills 😅. I have had some concerns initially when climbing the Mountains out West. Foot to the floor, down shifting to 2nd or 3rd, 25 to 35 mph. Definitely gets your attention😃. Took a while to build confidence that the rig can handle it. Definitely gets the blood pressure up and stress level high. Glad you made it. We are on our way East. Salt Lake destination Thursday. Love the Motorcycle picture. Sent it along to some of my Motorcycle riding buddies
That’s quite a drive. Yikes
I love the Pueblo style picnic table area.
Enjoy your time.
Temps look comfortable down there this week. Enjoy. It’s in high 90’s this week where we are (OR, ID, UT)
