We drove to West Texas to visit the Big Bend National Park and the Guadalupe Mountain National park, then back to New Mexico to visit Carlsbad Caverns National Park and White Sands National Monument.  This trip was from 26 February to 8 March.  We traveled in my 1996 Lumina and had to disconnect the horn as it would go off when I turned a corner. This happened after cold temperatures and five days on the road.  We expected to see lots of flowers, but the weather was still cold and only got to see a few.  The picture below was taken at Big Bend NP.
