Silver City, NM to Caballo, NM (75 miles)

We took yesterday off at the Silver City KOA campground. The couple who own it are cyclists and spoiled us rotten. They gave us cookies the first night, ice cream the next, and made us an extra round of pancakes on the house for breakfast this morning. All and all it was a restful and relaxing day.

With our fresh pair of legs we tackled the highest climb of of trip to date. In fact, it is the highest elevation we will reach across the US at 8300ft(2500m). The views from the top were breathtaking! From there we began our decent, steep and windy to start then straight into Caballo with a very strong wind at our backs.


  1. Love to see pictures!Mom Morrissey

  2. What an adventure, LindsEy, Joe, and Gerry! Now you need to collaborate on a book about the open road and the people you've met. Had a wonderful dinner with your mom and Mo Belsito the other night. Safe trip to you -- enjoy! -Lee George oxox
