The Birding Road
Who comes up with this stuff?
Although M. and I are frequently in northern New Mexico, we visit the state's southern part less often.
Last Friday, in fact, was our first trip over NM 26, which cuts off some miles if you want to go from eastbound Interstate 10 to northbound I-25.
FIrst we pass a sign reading "New Mexico Birding Trail."
After that, a distance sign, something like "Nutt -- 15 miles. Hatch -- 24 miles."
Somewhere, a state highway department bureaucrat must be quietly chuckling at his desk.
