Looking for some warmer weather and some epic riding, we headed down to Silver City, New Mexico.
The road taking us to destination was quite interesting, if not frightening! I had to make sure not to drive into deers or cows or go over a cliff! We drove up as high as 10000ft, wich revealed some of the most amazing views. This region of New Mexico used to thrive exploiting mines, but a lot of them now closed, gave way to a few ghost towns, a lot of run down and mainly abandoned houses and buildings.
Our campsite is not located in a national park, but between the main road and a cemetery. It has some essential features, clean WARM SHOWERS and 10km from the Gila Park. An awesome, constant, very long climb straight out of our cozy RV into the National Park, a spectacular road ride on a very quiet road. On our 70km ride today, we climbed 1199m. Hopefully Tucson will be gentler on my knees tomorrow!
