Epic Road Trip # 2 - Day 6

3/4/2014 - Alpine, TX to Artesia, NM

We left Alpine, TX at around 9 a.m. And it was still quite chilly. Definitely a long pants type of day...:-(

Our first stop of the day was at Fort Davis National Historic Site, Fort Davis, TX. It was very informative and I learned that it was home to the Buffalo Soldiers for almost 10 years.

We stopped for lunch at Papa's Pantry Cafe, Van Horn, TX were we had a wonderful meal of smothered burittos with green chile sauce....yummy!

Most of our trip through Texas has been along the Texas Mountain Trail.

Our next stop was at Guadalupe Mountain National Park, Texas. The pictures say it all.

Then it was on to Carlsbad Caverns National Park, NM. I was here 30+ years ago and it still just as amazing!

We even found some aliens on vacation from Roswell, NM.

We called it a day at the Artesia Inn, Artesia, NM. 

We had dinner at Chopz Bar & Grill, Artesia, NM. The food was fabulous...and the green sauce aw spectacular! 

Tomorrow we are off to White Sands National Monument, White Sands, NM.
