Trip Report Texas/New Mexico Trip

Jump to last reply

Enjoyed the trip to this area of the country. Spent a few days in New Mexico and a few in Texas.

Stayed one night in Socorro and visited the VLA, Kelly Ghost Mine, Old stockyard, and Socorro Brewing. The VLA is cool to see. Visited Truth or Consequences and took a dip in one of the springs. Drove past Elephant Butte. Visited Hatch and had the best burger ever in my life at Sparky's. Stayed in Las Cruces and visited High Desert Brewing and De las Vegas Pecan Grill & Brewery. Drove to White Sands and did some sledding. Visited the Missle Museum on White Sands military base. Hiked the Dripping Springs area of the Organ Mounatins. Might have missed a few things......

In El Paso, visited UTEP campus, drank at BJ's and Jaxon's (two locations), hiked around Hueco Tanks (a let down, trails needs to be better marked and much is blocked unless you take scheduled tours). HIked to Aztec Cave in Frankling Mountains. Again, might have missed a few things. Watched sunset from scenic view. Did some of the mission trail.

El Paso is very industrial looking but there are really nice homes in the area and the people are very nice.

My wife and I liked spending time in both areas, the Southwest area of the country always exceeds.
