Today we had some time to kill. So we drove up 70 to peek on the other side of the mountain. What an amazing view you get from the top of the pass. We drove into the Aguirre Springs campground to check it out. Someone drove 1 of those large school busses up there. No way would I drive my rig up there.I see you went to dripping springs. Another nice place to visit is on the other side of the Organ Mountains. Take 70 East until you go over the San Augustin pass, shortly after on the right is a State Park...….The Organs are different on the other side...……..if you continue on 70 for 25-30 miles you will hit White Sands Park on the left...….An amazing place, especially at night. You will go through a Border Patrol checkpoint on 70...….if you continue, you will hit Alamogordo. It has interesting things to see as well. If you are lucky, you may be able to visit Trinity Site in White Sands. They only open it to the public once or twice a year...……….this is the site of the first nuclear weapon detination.
Those views dont disappoint. You can literally see for miles. Not a whole lot of homes out that way but plenty of open land to roam.
