The woman here takes in stray cats and there are surely no less than 50 of them on the premises. They roam everywhere. One large cat, called Boots, tries to attack Lexie during our walks and I'm forced to throw rocks at him. I also fear Lexie will find "kittie cookies" buried in the dust. I've read about a condition... Uck. I can't bear to think about it. Surely she wouldn't... would she?
We stayed on for two nights and drove back into the nicer, newer, western part of El Paso for supplies and a stop at the Petsmart the second day.
|Traffic in El Paso|
|It's just a few miles down the road to the New Mexico state line.|
Maybe we can get to Tuscon in time to settle in for Christmas. At least that's the plan. From our two night stay in Anthony, NM we make short work of the ride into Arizona. The rugged mountains continue along our route, but we're driving on flat terrain.
|We've passed many of these signs.|
|Can you imagine driving through a dust storm?|
|Long stretches of highway without places to stop.|
We keep a close watch on the fuel gauge.
