In February 2008, one day I cycled from Reserve to Datil, a 68 mile distancealong State Highway 12 in Catron County.This ride was part of my overall journey ofbike across America ride, in whichI began in San Diego, California and finished at Jekyll Island, Georgia.

It was a fairly cold morning and some snow flurries were still coming down after anight of snowfall in western New Mexico. The sun did come out and by the time I arrivedat the Continental Divide, things had warmed up somewhat.

There were hardly any vehicles while I briefly rested at the divide, and I captured the photo above using the timer on my camera.Disappointingly, this particular point on the divide did not have a name, at least based on the signageon the road. Still, I was so happy to have made it up there.



About ten miles downhill from the pass, I captured this beautiful view near Horse Springs, New Mexico.
