A recent trip to Silver City, New Mexico. It's a delightful small town, full of interest.
Here's an iconic building on the "main drag."
Some back-alley grafitti.
This is the main point of interest in Silver City, The Big Ditch. Back in 1895 a flood raced down the main street, carving a 35-foot deep gulley. Less than ten years later another flood finished carving the ditch all the way down to bedrock, about 55-feet below street level. So now it's a park with bridges crossing in two places.
Patios galore overlook The Big Ditch.
What would any bridge be without grafitti? Well-drawn letters, no?
We inquired at the Chamber of Commerce if perchance there was a Starbucks in Silver City. The kindly lady at the desk said, "A Tenbucks here? No, Dearie, we make our own coffee."
