On the road again, this time heading home. Floyd did manage to get some pictures of "our" jackrabbit last night at dusk, but since he doesn't have the camera cord with him, you'll have to settle for some cool rock pictures from our tour of south Arizona today.
Other discoveries today:
There's nothing worse than sitting in traffic at a dead stop on an interstate -- unless it's sitting there next to a race track, where stock cars are whizzing by at about 150 miles an hour.
The southern part of Arizona has vast orchards of nut trees. What kind? Maybe pecan, or pistachio, or walnuts. The roadside stands were selling all three.
Another "landscape" feature includes airplane graveyards.
Beyond that, about all you can see along Interstate 10 are periodic trading posts, all of which seem to use the same set of billboards to advertise their wares. After the first two, it would seem simpler to have just one sign that reads "What the other guys are selling."
We did cross the Continental Divide again today, but it was at less than 5000 feet, and thus had nothing particularly notable about it.
Tonight we're in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Tomorrow we hit El Paso early and then spend the rest of the day in Texas, ending up in Abilene. This route back to Tennessee has the advantage (for me) of lower altitudes, but the scenery? Meh!
