Leaving Roswell, Headed to Phoenix

More pictures on the way. Leaving Roswell you see Ruidoso, Alamagordo, etc…. in New Mexico. Those are really beautiful places. Worth watching. Definitely worth stopping in and looking around. Didn’t have time on this trip to stop on local towns.

I wanted to reach Phoenix before 5pm to walk around and take pictures and see the place.

Anyway these are more pictures….

Roswell, New Mexico!

So what is Roswell like? It’s really a small town. Sign says population is 50,000 but seems small. It’s just got one main road. The lady at the hotel said the Main St. is their main street and anything off of that road is just suburbs. Which she said might be nicer but also less “advanced” as the Main St. Looks like AnyTown, USA.

Some pictures from Roswell….

The show Roswell was always showing South 285. Well there she is!

Roswell, New Mexico finally!

So Roswell is pretty much another anytown, USA. Other than little green men painted on every other thing, it’s just another rundown midwest like town. It may not be midwest but sure looks it. US380 was a big disapointment to drive on. It is small and boring and dull. Fun but still boring. Put more wear and tear on the tires driving on some odd incorrectly paved road/street.

Will definitely take the 40 on the way back to Dallas, TX.

So what is so special about little cheesy paintings of aliens? It’s eccentric. It’s still fun to see. The UFO museum was closed by the time I was ready to go to it. Arrived in town 4pm. Got done and headed out 4:30. Saw a museum sign and went it. It was the Roswell Arts Museum or some such. Not the UFO museum. By the time got out, it was closed.

So will post some pictures later.

As the time to leave nears, the anxiety increases. The anxious wait for the trip!

Anxious, because I have never done something similar. I fly for business all the time. And that also make me anxious. Always to the point where I can’t sleep the nite before. So tonite will be a fun nite. When I travel for work, the difference is that if the town is not that great, I can just stay at the hotel and order room service. There’s no need to walk. But on a roadtrip the walking is part of the roadtrip. The tourism and such.

I have never been to Roswell or New Mexico. No idea what the people are like. Feeling slight apprehension about that. Hopefully, it will be unjustified.

So they say there’s some aliens in Roswell. All I can think is that those aliens better be legal! Ok, not the best joke but still!

Some UFO convention is going on. That’s what the hotel lady said. Or maybe everyday some UFO thing is big in Roswell. Anyway, only one day to find out!
