Before 7:00am we are packed and ready to go. A quick breakfast at Mickey D’s and out of town we head to the West toward Arizona. Hwy. 180 again is a beautiful desert bathed in the morning light. The little morning traffic heading into Silver City soon dissipates and we are left again on desolate highways in the vast landscape. Careful count of the mileage is critical today as the roads, if missed, don’t offer opportunities to soon correct your mistakes.
