On the Mexican Border

In El Paso, Texas we visited Chamizal National Memorial and learned some US-Mexican History.

We have a chamizo in our yard! We planted a four-wing saltbush.

Presidents Kennedy and Johnson finally made this land border official with the new river route.

It is now a cultural center as well with this wonderful mural on the building.

We camped 4 nights at Poncho Villa State Park and learned a bit more of border history.

The train ran though Columbus, New Mexico (3 miles north of Mexico) – a pleasant small town.

Well that’s all folks for close to the border!
