13. New Mexico is a wonderful, beautiful state.

I was lucky enough to visit several years back. Awesome food, incredible scenery, and really nice folks. Literally stopped us at a couple of stoplights due to the Alaska tags on the back of the motorcycle. One nice young man insisted on buying us a cup of coffee (it was 5 a.m.) at a local diner, then proceeded to introduce us to everyone in the little place! We'd just come out of Colorado, headed south, and stopped in Raton. This was on a Sunday, and there was only one gas station; the Guard was on maneuvers and lined up at the pump - and they waved these old hippies on a motorcycle to the head of the line!

Got some great photos but all on print, and my scanner is down for the count (on a count of $$).

We did feel one aftershock, about a 2.8, a while ago (about 9, I think) but only because we were paying attention! Not worried much, the Denali Fault is quite stable for what it is. The one in 2002, a 7.9, would have leveled Los Angeles; there was one (yeah, one) broken arm and a LOT of road damage. http://www.aeic.alaska.edu/Denali_Fault_2002/
