Thanksgiving in Texas -- Nov. and Dec. 2010

Day 8, November 21. Carrizozo, NM, to Big Spring, TX. We tried to visit the Smoky Bear National Historic Site, but they open late on Sunday mornings, so we looked in from the outside and drove on to the Smoky Bear overlook. From there, you can see the area where the slightly burned bear cub was captured.

From there, it was on to Roswell, NM, where I were disappointed by the small amount of alien architecture. Of course, some might have been disappointed by the large amount of alien architecture.

From Roswell, we stopped at Bitter Lake MWR for the afternoon. The place is known for its dragonflies, and sure enough, there were flocks of dragons. We drove into the late evening and stopped at Big Spring, TX.
