Where we stayed: Tumble In RV Park
We headed down I-10 toward Las Cruces, the same route we took a month before on our way toward Carlsbad Caverns. This time we drove through El Paso (I tried not to look as we cars merged on and off the freeway around us...sometimes slowing down awkardly letting us in front of them or getting on really slowly as we try to slow down our 20,000lbs. The most interesting part of driving through El Paso was being able to see over the border into Juarez, Mexico. A city known for drug smuggling and violence (since Albuquerque we've been watching Breaking Bad), you can easily tell a difference from the US and this part of Mexico by looking through the chain link fence that separates El Paso from Juarez.

Where we stayed: Whites City RV Park
After our morning hike and rock collecting at Rock Hound State Park, we headed out toward Carlsbad Caverns. Matt booked the last tour of the season for Slaughter Canyon Cave so we had to rush to get to Carlsbad.
Below is a pic of us heading east toward Las Cruces, New Mexico. Those are the towering Organ Mountains in the distance.
I'll be sharing our travel plans, some reviews, cooking ideas (because I know you are all jealous of my easy-bake oven), and ... oh who am I kidding?! I'll be lucky to get our photos posted!
