New Mexican Wash

Rain falling on the western side of the Sacramento Mountains drains into the Tularosa Basin via many washes, one of which is pictured here. These washes undercut US-54, the main road between Alamogordo and northern New Mexico, as well as the railroad line that parallels the highway. Consequently there are numerous small bridges along the way that allow for a decent photo opportunity. I actually got down into the wash for this one, though.
