El Paso

Posted in : Uncategorized on by : Bill York

The next stop was El Paso, TX.  I had never been there before so I decided to stop and checkout the downtown.  It is right on the border with Mexico and has a bunch of tall buildings in the downtown.  However on the other side of the border is a shanty town.

I had dinner in El Paso and then I continued on into New Mexico.  I was slammed by a thunderstorm and down pour at the state line and visitors center.  I had hoped to camp at a campground between Las Cruces and White Sands National Monument in the Organ Mountains but it was closed when I arrived, so I continued on to Alamogordo, NM.
