    We were soon in New Mexico with I10 going north. Soon it split from I25 and turned west and we crossed the Rio Grande River. Not much of a view of it unfortunately.

    Once out of the fertile Rio Grande River valley we were in high desert wide flat valleys climbing ever so gradually to the Continental Divide. Thinking about it over the years I driven across the Continental Divide in two places in New Mexico, five in Colorado and two, maybe three in Wyoming. Another example of why the wife uses filters for some of her photos, I don't.

    We got to Tucson mid-afternoon and checked into a hotel. Had a nice view to the north of Mount Lemmon, our destination next morning before we headed to Phoenix and home. We traveled a modest 335 miles today.

    But first to dinner. We had noticed this Thai restaurant was next to the hotel so went there for dinner. The wife was concerned there wouldn't be enough chili so she asked them to go heavy. The food was excellent and as you can see, the wife got her chili hit.

    Having been disappointed by the hotel and knowing our time in the USA was drawing to a close we decided to go to iHop for breakfast, neither of us had ever been before. Was quite good.

    While having breakfast another group came in. Both women bare footed. Never ever seen this in the USA previously in a setting like this. Maybe I've had a sheltered life here.

    So we headed up Mount Lemmon which is approximately 9,200 feet high. Tucson is around 2,600 feet elevation so it is kind of hard to miss when you look north. It is high enough to support alpine meadows and one of three or four ski resorts in Arizona.

    ^Pretty cool views from that Mount Lemming. I like how the cacti are growing up the mountain.
    Just beautiful views and road trip that you did.

    Nice pictures/report, thanks.

    You certainly covered a lot of ground, and quickly... I'd love to do a lot of that (maybe all of it), but at a more relaxed pace and perhaps taking a bit more in. For example, many of those weird places that you mentioned, the dirty, empty skull-ridden bar/restaurant, would have been a good place to get drunk at, imho - maybe Dennis Hopper would walk in... If you're doing an American road trip you've gotta expect the weird...
    How do I post these pictures???

    Awesome. Ive fond memories of the states. Bought a winibago and cruised around starting in seattle and finishing in los angeles . One of the most hospitable counties ive ever been in. The folk there treat you right and are genuinely friendly. It might of helped that im aussie and the movie Crocodile dundee came out at the same time making aussies flavour of the month. Would go there again in a heartbeat

    And that was it. Late morning we descended the mountain and drove back to Phoenix to finish our eight day trip. 5,062.5 miles in eight days of driving.

    But that was just a warm-up....
