We crossed the High Plains, the Continental Divide, and entered into a new time zone, as we continued our journey west.
Saw 4 wild peccary by the side of the road. I wish I had a way to pull over and photograph them. There were 3 adults and one little bitty one.
Today we saw a roadrunner and just as I was aiming for the photo, a white Honda came by and scared it off.
Creosote bushes have given way to cactus and desert varieties of what I think are in the palm family. The air is getting thinner.
I’m looking forward to hearing about the this leg of your trip. 🙂
🙂 It so gorgeous out here, as you well know. It’s hard to stop staring at the mountains. On the way here they were in the distance, covered with snow.
Peccary? Is that a rodent? I have a picture in my head of a wombat like creature for some reason. I’m also picturing the roadrunner outrunning the Honda! *beep beep*
Was there anything at all at Shakespeare or just the sign?
The peccary is either in the rodent or pig family… not sure which. It looks like a furry-pig. haha!
Shakespeare was just a building…. with an outbuilding…. and someone’s house. I still can’t figure it out. No one was home.
I went through Lordsburg a few years ago. Looks like a dessert town, i.e. Fprt Stockton, TX.
And Deming! They’re all the same. lo
