Our first stop most days is usually for fuel. Today we got just enough here to get us to Las Cruces where fuel prices were considerably lower. There are lots of these trading post, souvenir shops around. It seems that the ones with the most billboards are the ones that are the smallest shops. I thought South of the Border billboards were annoying!
Brett decided to wash the whales windows while we were stopped. He likes to have a clear view out the back when he is enjoying his lunch. I forget how huge this thing is until I see somebody standing right next to it.
The New Mexico highways do have one strange amenity. About a mile back we saw a sign that said "Table Ahead". And there was! Every so often there will be a shelter such as this (for shade I would guess) with one picnic table underneath it.
I have two wildlife sightings to report for today and they are both living wildlife (at least they were when I saw them). The first was a huge, brown bunny that hopped across the road. The second was a huge, black tarantula that was walking beside the road while we were traveling at 65 mph. I hate the idea of spiders that are big enough to see when you are driving that fast.
