As we left San Antonio we quickly got a feel for how big Texas really is:
|Rolling hills and expansive views|
As we entered the mountains there was a scenic look-off. We stopped to check out the scenery. The view point was actually at the top of a pretty high climb but I decided to hike up quickly and take a look. Did not realize we were at an elevation of about 4000 ft. and the air was getting thin - thought I was having a heart attack half way up - then it registered that we were at a higher elevation than we are accustomed to. So I slowed down and made it to the top. The view was worth it:

We originally planned to spend two weeks in New Mexico but that was not to be. And that is probably a good thing - the elevation in New Mexico is high and it is cold there. But beautiful. This is the view from the RV park where we stopped on night 2:
La Hacienda RV Resort in Apache Junction.. Which turned out to be the best of the bunch - he has excellent taste - and we checked in there for the rest of January.
