My day in Columbus wasn't as bad as ol' Pancho's, but I'm not going back there either, so we have something in common! Rt. 9 is within a half mile of the Mexican border, and I could actually look to my left and see the fence line on the border, in places. It was Sunday morning, and there were very, very few cars on the road, not even border patrol. I did see a road runner, which was cool, until Pam told me she saw tons of them at the state park (I didn't see any by the time I got there). I also saw a dead coyote along the side of the road, as well as a lot of coyote tracks, and digging marks near the roots of some mesquite trees where they were looking for moisture. I also saw some poop! It was a slow day.
|Okay, now here's the challenge for you! If you look at the fence (actually a dark line) in the high middle of the picture, that's the Mexican border. It IS NOT the fence in the foreground. Do you see it???|

|Looking at the cactus gardens at Poncho Villa SP. Actually, we were looking for road runners!|
|Cool cactus! It has a bird nest in the center. We are really making you folks work hard with these pictures!!!|
