We are now at Elephant Butte Lake State Park in Elephant Butte New Mexico, right next to Truth Or Consequences. I-25 runs along here and the lake is right on the Rio Grande river, so it has a dam here. Where is that you ask about 95 miles north of El Paso Texas. We are definitely now in the high desert area. Drove 276 miles today, was a nice drive, but seemed long. Here till Monday and will just hang out for the week end.
