Today began with breakfast at McDonalds with another rider, Kelly from Arizona. He arrived late last night on his yellow Suzuki; said he’d been touring a few days but is now on his way home. We’d been to some of the same places but just missed each other so we had plenty to talk about.
Along the way there was a small green road sign pointing to the small community of San Lorenzo so I decided to go see it. That’s one of the things I like to do best, explore small settlements just to see how the people are living.
One of the houses in particular caught my eye so I shot several photos of it through the fence.
After that I passed by the White Sands Missile Range and the Trinity site where the 1st Atomic was exploded on July 16, 1945, just a few days before my 5th birthday. Ewww… That was really a long time ago. Tourism at either site is discouraged. Yep.
Little old ladies can be a bit unnerving at times, eh? You never know for certain what they really want…
Back on the road again I finally found my way into Roswell where Garmin and Company directed me to the usual Motel 6. After checking in I hopped back on the bike and rode to the Red Lobster for dinner where I expect I gained 5 lbs. Maybe 12. No sense worrying about it now, I’m happy and that’s what counts.
