Island Girl Traverses New Mexico

On day 34, Sunday, Island Girl started to veer to the north as expected. She flew 490 km (304 miles), crossing nearly the entire state and paralleling the eastern border of New Mexico.

She finally stopped for the day in a unique area of volcanic cones and lava flows about 80 km (50 miles) WNW of Clayton, NM, and only 8 km (5 miles) south of the Colorado border. Some friends of the SCPP (including Bryan Kimsey, Juan De Marcken and Willard Heck) all live in New Mexico and we are working together in the hopes of intercepting Island Girl. It is a long shot but well worth the effort.

She slept on the side of an extinct volcano at 7,486' about 8 km (5 miles) ESE of Capulin.
