Day 8

Fort Stockton – El Paso / driving distance: 240 mi / 386 km

The City of El Paso is located on the westernmost tip of the state of Texas and is on the US/Mexico border. Its proximity to Mexico helps promote the best the two worlds have to offer, and El Pasoans have long enjoyed the benefits of being situated between three states and two nations. El Paso’s climate – typical of the desert southwest – the fact that it is located at the base of the Franklin Mountains, and its mix of cultures and traditions makes the Sun City a unique and interesting place to visit.

Day 10

Albuquerque

Albuquerque is a city full of exciting attractions and events, from Historic Old Town, where the Villa of Albuquerque was founded in 1706, to the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, the most popular ballooning event in the world. The code of the West rules here in spirit as you venture north through Pecos County where giants and legends, such as Pecos Bill, are made. Look for deer, javelinas, jackrabbits, and coyote as you journey across this seemingly uninhabitable terrain.

Amarillo was once a railhead town for cattle shipments to the North. The cattle industry remains an important element of the city’s economy. Amarillo is well known for its Cadillac graveyard.
