The Trip 2002

Day 10: Roswell NM. to Benson Az. (just east of Tucson Az.)

Leaving Roswell we headed west on 380. We planned on taking 70 through Ruidoso, but because of severe forest fires in the area we stayed on 380 to I-25 to I-10, which brought us to Capitan (birthplace of Smokey Bear), Valley of Fires (a valley full of lava flows),Whitesands Missle Base, and the Trinity site. Home of the first atomic test in the United States.

We stayed at a Days Inn in Benson Az.which is just east of Tucson
