A few more from Scholle, New Mexico

Scholle, New Mexico, a spot that consists of, as far as I can tell, an overpass, railroad tracks, and lots of desert is a beautiful spot to watch the trains pass by. The tracks are part of BNSF's "Transcon," rolling across the Southwest. It is also near Abo Canyon, which used to be a huge bottleneck on the route. It has since been double-tracked, but that just means those hundred or so trains a day roll through at a faster clip.
If you get bored with the trains, head over to the nearby Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument for a nice change of pace. There is gas and food (and more railroad) in Mountainair.
