    That is the way to go if you are in a hurry but if you would rather enjoy seeing more of Mexico I would suggest you cross south of Deming NM and go to Casas Grandes then on to Creel then to Guachochi then to Parral then down to Zacatecas. This rout is much more scenic but your rout is faster if you need to make time.

    Would somebody be kind enough to post the address, directions or coordinates to where the pools/swimming holes are near Moncova?


    I’m about to be in that area, and would like to check them out.

    Thanks

    I believe you're talking about Cuatro Ciénegas

    26°59′N 102°03′W

    There are a ton of ride reports and posts on it. Use site:advrider.com cuatro cienegas in a Google search box

    I reported in January about the passing of Steve Johnson, founder of F650.com. Today, I witnessed the spreading of the final portion of his ashes in the Rio Bacanuci, just north of Arizpe by his riding friends, Maralyn, John, Marina. I have been told that Steve spent his first night as a Mexico rider in Arizpe so it was a fitting location.
    The rest of his ashes were spread in Alamos and in the sea of Cortez at San Carlos.
