    The fastest route is I-10 to US-290. This route is about 1380 miles and will require about 26 hours of sustained driving, so two days is a reasonable approach.

    El Paso is an interesting place to stop for the night -- but I would suggest Las Cruces might be more fun. Some great restuarants and beautiful mountains would make it my first choice. In fact, there is a place in Las Cruces, recommended by our road chow friend, Scott Sharot , that I would urge you to check out. Nopalito's Restaurant is located in a former Baptist Church on S. Mesquite and is very authentic Mexican fare.

    Have a fun trip and we look forward to your field report!
