I like living in the quiet desert town of Silver City, New Mexico except that it's a long way to any airport. The airport in El Paso, TX is a 4-hour roundtrip; the one in Albuquerque, NM is even farther away. People coming to see us usually fly into Tucson, Arizona. The airport is an easy one to navigate and the 6-hour roundtrip is more scenic. My son returns to Oregon today and I am reminding myself that distance is relative ... especially when saying goodbye to a relative!
