Went over pass at Raton at 10:30, alt 6600 ft.
Spent pleasant day talking with woman who lives in Pasadena and reading Wallace’s Malay Archipelago. Also thinking about everything. Southwest country looked very familiar & brought me back to RBMV Expedition . Fairly warm in day but characteristically cold at night. Seems incredible that I will be in Honolulu on Wednesday morning.
Went to bed at 8 in preparation for early change of trains tomorrow.
