New Mexico Road Trip

August 5, 2015
   Had some last minute True West issues to take care of this morning, then hit the road at 11. Stopped in Payson to have lunch with an old bandmate, Gordon Smith and his significant other, Heather The Weather Girl. Great times talking about rock and roll and various dead people we know.

Took off from Payson at three. On my way to New Mexico today. It was 110 degrees when I left the Valley, 90 at Payson, 77 at McNary and 73 at Sunrise. Heaven on earth, I must say.

 All roads (when I'm driving) lead to Los Dos Molinos in Springerville, Arizona, gateway to the Land of Enchantment. The big question is, red or green? 

The very hot red and green salsa at Los Dos Molinos in Springerville, Arizona.

   Personally, I had both along with an adovada taco, homemade beans and a killer margarita. Walked back to the motel, smiling all the way. Billy bound mañana.
