The rain has stopped and we are now in clear blue skies. Driving thru Hatch we saw a lot of chili hanging out for sale. At the town of Deming NM, we picked up I10 W., shortly after, 12:30-12:50 pm we pulled into a rest are to stretch our legs then continued on westward, crossing the Continental Divide 51 miles from Arizona.
