Interstate 10 in New Mexico

In 2007, I started at Truth or Consequences, NM and was en route to Tucson, Arizonavia Interstate 10 in New Mexico.I was heading westbound between the towns of Deming and Lordsburg whenI approached the Continental Divide sign on the side of the highway.

It was a fairly isolated and flat area and frankly,I could not even notice any kind of summit or crest at this point. Also, there was nowhere to pull over and it felt somewhat dangerousto be pulled over on the side of the highway with so much traffic whizzing by.Interestingly, there were snow flurries during my visit to the divide!

I did not bother to get out of my car, and I simple turnedthe camera back towards east to give you the view.

Four years later, in 2011, I came through again.This time, I was on a bicycle as part of my bike across America ride.Above is a great shot of myself(right) with Tom Vossman, a fellow cyclist I met the day before who was also riding cross-country.

I've got to be honest. I don't think I noticedany kind of indentation or hill whatsoever in the vicinity of the divide! :)
