This index page is a gateway to the many short travels we have undertaken since moving to Las Cruces, New Mexico. These travelogue pages were not compiled so much to inform others, as much as for our own recollection of the trips we have taken. We look forward to re-visiting our trips by viewing these pages often ... not only to enjoy the photo images but the background stories.
