Get the heck out of dodge! This past Wednesday, the city streets of Las Cruces better resembled a sick Allstate commercial. After watching a cop car speed through an intersection, do a full 360, and magically come out of it unscathed—only to speed on—I knew it was time to flee town. I was more than happy to be driving the 4Runner, armed with 3/16 thick steel from bumper to bumper, after I narrowly avoided a few out of control cars on my way out of town. I logged 75 miles across remote sections of Dona Ana County enjoying the snowy & serene desert scenery. Areas of my “snow day” exploration included: Corralitos Ranch, Sierra de las Uvas, Thunderhead Plains & Organ Mountains.
