Lunch view at El Malpais Natl Monment, south of Grants, NM.
The drive from Show Low east on US 60 , then angling NE on NM state roads to intersect with I-40 near Grants, was a joy. The Beast hummed along happily, Emma dozed in a druggy way, and I just grinned.
Going through ABQ north to Santa Fe was not so fun. I got in camp here at about 5. A longer day than I'd thought, but no problems. Beast got between 10 and 11 mpg.
