At one time New Mexico was the second largest producer of pecans in the US after Georgia. Recent East Coast hurricanes have destroyed much of the Georgia orchards making New Mexico number one. Please read this article for fascinating details.

Tiday was a short ride of 50 miles. The White Rabbit got his first yellow jersey of the trip. When he arrived the feisty , head female route leader snidely spit out “ What did you do? Knock all the others off?”

Tomorrow begins the Texas chipseal roads… 95 miles to Sierra Blanca.

No more story today… nap time for a tired bunny who pushed the pace.
