We spent a few long driving days travelling from Texas back to California. We were glad to stay at least one night in New Mexico, at Rockhound State Park.
I loved the landscape and in particular all the cacti. Some of them were huge, which was a bit of a surprise. We hiked up Picacho Peak in Arizona. It was right off the highway, so not the most tranquil location, but It was still really pretty. It was really good to get out and stretch the legs.
