new mexico run

Last Sunday, we went on a long New Mexico bike run with my man Red Light and fellow Mad Hatters Obe, RayRay, and RayRay's wife Judy. From El Paso, to Carlsbad, to Artesia, to Cloudcroft, to Alamogordo, and back.... 13 hours, about ten (!!) of which were spent on the bike... I never knew how bad it can hurt to simply have your butt fall asleep, but oh man does it ever. It was a hard ride, but also a beautiful one.... from the desert to the mountains, plains and forests, from early morning sunshine to deepening dusk... we saw so many awesome things along the way. We also stopped off at the legendary haunted Lodge in Cloudcroft, which was great because I have adored that lovely, spooky place since I was a kid, and nobody else had ever been there before, so I totally got to show it off to my peeps... *grin*

Here are some shots from our run. Enjoy!
