Silver City, NM. 2014

In May, I took a short trip to Silver City, New Mexico to visit my motorcycle friends who were holding a small weekend rally. Several travelled over a thousand miles to get there, as far away as Vancouver, Canada  to meet old friends, make new ones, share some meals and some riding - and then turn around and head home. Still recovering my shoulder surgery, I drove my truck. What should have been a five hour trip, ending up closer to eight. I’m slow and I stop to wander, explore and stop to discover interesting photos.

These were taken along rt 180 from Alpine, AZ to Silver City.



The Catwalk at Glenwood. Washed out last year in floods.

Pit stop

Abandoned farm house


I spent the following day visiting two museums and wandering around the old streets and shops. It is an interesting town with much history and many of the houses are well preserved. I’m not sure which has more character though - the townspeople or the buildings. It is a very colorful place!

One of the highlights of the day was meeting Teddy and Rebecca at the Visitor Center. Teddy is one of the most upbeat and personable dogs I have ever met and Rebecca was firm, but gracious when she said I could not take Teddy home with me! Haha!!

Next trip will be to Sparks, Nevada up near Reno in July and I hope to back on my motorcycle by then!

Safe travels...
