It's about 1000 miles from Fayetteville, Arkansas to Silver City, New Mexico. This is a drive that typically we do as fast as possible given that the bike races in those two cities are only a couple of days apart. Thankfully for everyone, the races were spaced out a bit this year so there was time for rest and adventure. So Alan and I went running.
We stopped on the drive out to take some pictures. The part of the Gila National forest we were in is about a 90 minute drive from Silver City.
Then we ran.
and took more photos.
and looked around at some cool outdoorsy goodness.
oh and there was this river.
We had to cross it.
