From Van Horn, TX to Las Cruces, NM

Aloha Everyone,

Unexpected detours and delays are part of our RV adventure. We stopped at Fabens, the last Texas rest area on I-10 West. While J.J. took a short nap I went for a walk enjoying colorful flowers that adorned this isolated rest area.

Back on I-10, motorists were directed to detour to Route 375. The flashing sign indicated that closure of I-10 westbound today is due to a new overpass being constructed. The detour passed by the El Paso International Airport.

Traversing the Franklin Mountain State Park was beautiful. By the time we merged back to I-10, the detour added about 40 minutes to our drive. Things worked out in our favor. J.J. was able to avoid the confusing, often tense and congested El Paso downtown freeway. I was able to see a new part of Texas.

We are back in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Comfortable weather with low of 48 and high of 77 Fahrenheit. Life is great!  

J.J. spotted an adventure quote on the back of a Jeep, “Not All Who Wander Are Lost.  Life is good.

Aloha - Cathi
