Graceland: Lordsburg, New Mexico
To be honest, we chose Lordsburg, New Mexico simply as a place to sleep between Arizona and Texas. We had psyched ourselves out for ghosts, potential murderers, and if we were really lucky, a Goodwill. However, we were pleased to find that Lordsburg is a town perfectly preserved in a 1950s time warp. It is also maybe the safest town we've ever been in; Clara got pulled over for going 45 in a 35 zone within 10 minutes of our arrival. Among the plentiful desert landscape in Lordsburg are small family run businesses filled with roadside treasures. Also, before we even got to our destination, we stopped off in Bumble Bee County to find homemade beef jerky, massive cacti and a pony named Comet. New Mexico, you proved us wrong!
