48 miles yesterday from Lordsburg to Silver City, NM – our last NM date. The local newspaper saidthis about the show.

Long jump today about 150 miles to an overcast Douglas, AZ. We’ve traveled as far south and about as far west (more or less) as we will go this season. From here we turn north and chase the late Spring into the high plains.

On today’s jump the Animas Mountains of southwestern NM provided a haunting backdrop. Many biologists belive that the Animas and nearby AZ territory may be the last refuge for tigers (jaguars) in the United States. Hard to believe the big cats were once found from AZ to FL. In Douglas only two hundred yards of open field separate the circus lot from Mexico. Shows today at 4:30 and 7:30.
