Highway 9 in southern New Mexico – our favorite pay-out tow road where we tow pilots to 10,000' MSL.  No power lines, stop signs, intersections, bridges for over 40 miles.  The tiny vehicle on the road is our truck pulling up a pilot for a high tow.  Mountains in the distance are the Potrillo Mountains.  When they are soarable it's indescribable.

Highway 9 in the southwest - pure open space
