Oh, a G must be for Glorieta, NM. Its historical significance is pretty interesting.

In order to break the Union blockade, which was surely killing the Confederacy, the leadership decided to open up a way to ship goods to the west coast, opening up a port there to ship their goods out. An expeditionary force was sent out from Texas. The endeavor ended in failure at Glorieta, New Mexico, where Union forces under the leadership of John Shivington (whose notorious fame came later when he massacred a large number of peaceful Native Americans) defeated the southern force.

The best reading on the matter is in Marc Simmons' New Mexico: An interpretive history.

Kanab, UT - just passed through there yesterday from Zion NP to Grand Canyon NP. Using the hotspot on the iPhone for internet connection! Works great whenever there's a Verizon signal available.

A B could be a bunch of places in NM, but I'm going back and forth between Beclabito and Bluewater.

The coin flip says Beclabito, which is located just short of the NM/AZ border on Highway 64. To get there from here, you go up to the intersection, turn left, and follow it for about 275 miles. Be careful because Beclabito is tiny, and you'll miss it if you wink. Teec Nos Pos is on the other side of the border, and it's big by comparison!

Well, a D could be for Dulce, NM. Dulce is a small town of over 2K population on none other than our own Highway 64 in Northern New Mexico. Comprised almost entirely of Native Americans, Dulce is the headquarters of the Jicarilla Apache Reservation. And it's really pretty area (at least on the reservation proper)!

For years, there's been a poor, lost Airstream sitting in a field a couple of miles outside of Dulce. Probably not worth much more than the metal at this point, but still a bit of a landmark for us.
