Silver City: Jan 9th
Silver City, NM
Jan 8th – Jan 22nd
January 9th, 2006
Silver City is located in the desert mountains. The altitude is 6000 ft, daily temperatures are in the range of 60 degrees and the mountains are clad in pine trees. The roads, as I have seen them so far, are either down or up, never flat and very windy.
I flew in yesterday and met Alyssa, Frank and Craig at the Albuquerque airport, and then we proceeded to drive 4 hours to the Silver City airport. I haven’t got a chance to look around town yet but from what I saw on the way in, it looks a lot like Bend, OR.
Today we ride for 3 hours easy, the weather is supposed to be around 60 degrees and sunny. It’s cold in the morning, so hopefully it will warm up as the day progresses. I guess that’s how the desert is and you can’t be too much more in the desert than this… dry, windy and high.
