Day 35- Sun , down hills , Lava Valley and Stars for miles

Woke to a surprisingly warm morning which was great, Had some breakfast and headed off. We were staying at the same camp tonight to which made things easy with no pack up. Great place here at Valley of Fires Camp ground and super cheap too.
The views straight off were awesome and we had a nice 20 miles of pretty much down hill. Of course there was one big hill but nothing to dishearten us.
Day 22 Day 23 Day 27 Day 25
We past into Lincoln County which famous for Billy the Kid, yeah he use to be riding around this area. Also we got to run down though the Valley of fires lava . There was a volcanic eruption way back in the day and well not sure from what mountain but it came up though the ground and flowed 47kms down the valley, Such a awesome site. Nothing is alive or hot but its a huge area that is covered.
