After wrapping up projects in Los Angeles in early February 2017, we began to head East again. We stopped back at the Salton Sea to get a better look and stayed for a beautiful sunset.
After painting a mural in Tucson, we went even more south to Tombstone and then Bisbee, AZ. Both are fun towns to roam, but we especially enjoyed the old mining town turned eclectic city of Bisbee. Below is the Lavender Pit right outside of the town.
A friend we met on the road suggested that we check out the new National Monument of Organ Mountains near Las Cruces, NM. The first night we stayed on BLM land to catch the sunset, then the next day we drove around the mountains then up in them at Aguierre Campground.
Reaching New Mexico, then Texas, we checked out the very quiet National Park of Guadalupe. We stayed a night at Pine Springs Campground and did the 4.2mi hike through Devil’s Hall.
Between Guadalupe and the Caverns we finally had a real roadtip moment of Honeybear getting a flat tire! Luckily, locals were available to repair the flat tire in under an hour.
Carlsbad Caverns was a pretty epic place to visit and we were definitely stunned by how large the underground National Park was! Visitors have the option of taking the elevator down 750ft, but we decided to hike it all the way down.
