I work a lot at the beginning and end of the month but for some reason had a few days off in the middle and had heard Silver City was interesting. It has been named one of the best small towns in America. We finally had the RV back so figued we should check it out.
We rolled in to town last night but just grilled some dinner and hung out in the rolling terd. Today we stopped at Gila Hike and Bike for advice and air for our bike tires. We headed out to Trail #74 which is part of the Continental Divide Trail. It goes up early but then levels to walk along a ridgeline for pretty nice view of the Gila.
We earned our lunch at Diane's which was good but the service was a bit slow. Curt had hatch eggs benedit (a New Mexico turn on eggs benedict) and I had french toast with blueberries and raspberries. After lunch we came home to see the girls and waited out a storm. At the Silver City RV Park the people were all over the place right after the storm raking up tree branches. It was kind of funny.
We read that the Little Toad Creek Brewery had a happy hour so we went to check out their beer and have an appetizer for dinner. The chili cheese fries turned out to be the hotest thing I have tried to eat in awhile and had to give most of them to Curt.
