The backroads between El Paso and Sierra Blanca take you through agricultural fields very close to the international border. (The mountains you see are in Mexico!) Travelers can see chile, pecans, alfalfa, corn, cotton and other crops growing in irrigated fields. This was taken on Hwy 192 near Esperanza, on Adventure Cycling Association's Southern Tier Route.
