Socorro, New Mexico
We spent a delightful three days in Pie Town, New Mexico, sampling homemade pies from three of the four pie shops in town. Our limited stay here did not permit us time to sample the pies from the Pie Source Homestead Café. Alas, it is time to say adios, until our next visit to this wonderful town, sitting on the Continental Divide, at an elevation of 7800 feet.
This next segment of our adventure takes us to Socorro, New Mexico. The Escondida Lake Park will be our home base, while we sample the World’s best Green Chile Cheeseburgers in the nearby town of San Antonio, Mexico. New Mexico is renown for it’s superb green chile cheeseburgers.
Tomorrow another adventure begins.
