Today, we crossed the Continental Divide, so it is all down hill from here to Florida.
This occurred about 50 mile east of the Arizona - New Mexico boarder

For those of you who are sure as to what the Continental Divide represents, please read further.

The Continental Divide is the mountain ride what separates the east side from the west side of the Rocky Mountains. It runs from Alaska down into Latin America. In places such as Colorado, crossing the Continental Divide involves a steep uphill climb as is found at the Eisenhower Tunnel just west of Denver. Down here on Interstate-10 in the southern part of New Mexico the uphill climb is extremely gentle.

In theory, a drop of water spilled east of the ridge will end up in the Atlantic Ocean and a drop of water spilled on the west side of the ridge will end up in the Pacific Ocean
