Driving New Mexico

During our drive in New Mexico, we finally got far enough East to reach the Continental Divide – an imaginary line down the USA where, to the West all rain eventually reaches the Pacific Ocean (ie: rivers flow west), while to the East, all rain eventually reaches the Atlantic Ocean (maybe via the Gulf – rivers flow south and east)! Nothing special, but there is a plaque on the roadside …


Here’s some more pics from our more-than 450 miles drive, from north of Durango to Socorro (with side trips to Sandia Crest and the VLA); as you see, New Mexico is much flatter than Colorado!
