Or so the Old 97s sang. In a mere 2 1/4 days we blazed across Texas trying to avoid severe, cold weather on our journey westward. We punted on Hueco Tanks, too many logistics to get into the park just to climb on boulders. Now our ‘pure’ climbing friends might balk at such actions, but I’m not one for fancy logistics to play in the outdoors. We opted instead to land in Columbus, NM at Poncho Villa State Park. Its just us, the snow birds, and the US Customs and Border Patrol. We’re three miles from the little Mexican border town called Palomas. We’ll check out this little town, but not for the medical tourism, just some margaritas and maybe some Mexican folk art.
The US Border Patrol Blimp is watching us….
