From Albuquerque we headed south into the nothingness of SE New Mexico. After miles of gazing at dirt we rolled into Roswell to finally learn the truth about the alien incident. Our investigation led us to the UFO Museum and Research Center where the high school level informational displays made it all clear: the residents of Roswell are quite bored.
Hungry from the sleuthing, we drove further south to Hagerman to visit Julia and Marcus and enjoy an authentic New Mexican backyard BBQ hosted by their neighbors. Brisket, asado, corn, potatoes, tortillas, beans and beer. Mike and I loved the asado (pork cooked in red chili) and Haley couldn't get enough of the beans.
Everyone had a great time chatting and eating way too much. We parked the RV in Julia and Marcus' front yard so we could plug in and run our AC during the night. It was a good stop in the little town of Hagerman.
