New Mexico Pictures

These are the leaving New Mexico pictures.

Left Alamogordo, NM for Tucson, AZ

I’m headed for the Pima Air & Space Museum. It’s so large – there are many planes outside!
Take a look at the map


Alamogordo, New Mexico

Visited a pistachio tree farm. Then we went back to Holloman AFB to take pictures of the planes on the parade grounds.

Holloman AFB

Rave Racer took me on a tour of Holloman Air Force Base. There were stealth planes on sticks, German Tornado planes, the German Airforce, Remote-controlled F-4 Phantoms, and THE T-38s used as the enemy “MiGs” in the Top Gun movie.

White Sands National Monument

White Sands is very close to Alamogordo – where I’m staying tonight.

Valley of Fires

These are the pictures from the Valley of Fires – near Carizozo, New Mexico

Mk1 Scirocco Spotted!

I was in Encino, NM – a very abandoned town on US-285.

At an abandoned service station: a Mk1 Scirocco!!  This is the first unsolicited Scirocco sighting of this trip!! FINALLY!!! And it’s a good one too!

I can see the Cell tower I am posting from. These things aren’t very powerful out here. There is not much civilization around here either! It’s pretty neat being the only car in sight for miles and miles.

Santa Fe, New Mexico

New Mexico has the most unique state capitol!  It’s also one of the hardest to take pictures of because of all the trees!

New Mexico State Line

I actually have more pictures than this – but the connection speed is very slow in this part of New Mexico – so I’ll just upload the border picture for now… 92 miles to go to get to Santa Fe.
