The view was totally worth it
So at the end of a day where you've been bricking and mortaring (yes, I believe that that IS the technical term for it) for oh, maybe eight or nine hours, the best thing to do would be to go for a hike, right? I mean, it's a balmy 102 degrees, and you just ate a ton of awesome food that some of the ladies in the community cooked you for dinner, so I'm thinking that hike idea just gets better and better. Anyway, here are Mollie and I at the top of the mountain. The view was spectacular, as you may be able to see. Behind us and to the left, where those mountains are is El Paso. Standing up there, you can clearly see the border. At night, we could see the border from outside our room, and you could tell where Mexico left off and the U.S. began because there are so many more lights in the U.S. It's pretty.
