Day 14: Rodeo to Columbus, New Mexico – 95 miles

Huge long day out of Rodeo to Columbus with a great tailwind. Actually did 92 miles today. It was great except the last 3 miles. The desert which is vast and now incredibly remote. Remnants of rabbits and vultures with big open sky. We had lunch in Huachita, New Mexico.

The only place to have it. There was an abandoned church that really must have been something in the day.

Columbus offered us a new school for two nights with a rest day that included A trip to Palomas, Mexico and the Pink Store. A visit to Pancho Villa State Park. Glad this one was in the books. No way to do this until now.
