Today was a long day; we left San Antonio about eight this morning and headed for El Paso about 540 miles away. When we left San Antonio everything was green and lush, along the way it changed first to rolling hills with foliage, then to flatlands with cactus and plants that survive with little rain. Finally we arrived in the mountainous area near El Paso and the Rio Grand River. Our trip was made much faster by the speed limit going up to 80 mph for most of the trip, I guess it is the fastest I have ever driven LEGALLY. Tomorrow we are heading for Tombstone, AZ where we will watch a reenactment of the fight at the OK Corral and look for the worlds largest rose bush.
