MID-USA & ROUTE 66 travel blog

tuesday sept 22, day 5, mostly drive day on our way to dodge city. heading north on hiway 70 - stopped in white sands, nm, passing mescalero apache indian resev, where they have the famous quarter horse races like drag racing, they race a 1/4mi strieght track not a round track, the track called ruidoso downs. coming from las cruces (hi desert country) into wooded mountains elev., at apache pass 7500' - had lunch in alamogordo (a name we use to call chris whiffin). was held up in white sands NM for 2 hrs due to firing missile tests that closed the park, which put us in bad time where crossing the pass, put us in the dark. getting to roswell, nm the well known town of UFOs, where we camped. getting there with 50mi of darkness driving through the forested area along the rio hondo, worried all the time being sucked up by aliens, now here is a spooky area about 100mi of nothing but high country, flat and hilly in and out of wooded areas, mostly large, horse raising farms where each have their own training track, raising 1/4 & stalian horses.
