Day 107 – New Mexico’s Scenic South Part 2

Day 107 of a Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways

In yesterday’s post I left out some interesting sights by mistake or they were at least interesting sights to me after driving hours at a time.  Little things go a long way.  The highway paralleled a train track.  As I passed by the trains, I noticed most of the cars were tagged, I believe that is the new word for graffiti.  I thought to myself, why wouldn’t the train company clean those cars, but then, it made it kind of interesting to look at all the cars as I passed the graffiti like art work.

A few minutes later I passed a poor man on a bicycle loaded downs with bags, on the handles, in the back, everywhere.  He was going about three miles per hour. I think that is about as slow as a bicycle can go without tilting over.  I hope he didn’t have to ride far on the side of the highway as vehicles sped by him and dogs chased him!
