Default Here are pictures taken from Transmountain road.

Just in case some people wanted to check out the great views from our Transmountain road that passes through the mountains in El Paso. This highway goes from the city's Westside to the Northeast part of town (or vice versa).

3 pictures of the view of the Westside, Canutillo, and New Mexico towns.




2 pictures of the western side of the mountains.



2 pictures of the Northeast side of town.



Picture of mountain view from the Northeast side.

You're welcome Cathy , I'm glad to hear you are moving close to us, Alamogordo is only about 80 miles away, so its a little over an hour, but we do have four lane highway that connects our towns together. As you may know, Alamogordo also has some very nice mountain views as well, I really enjoy looking at the mountains that are next Alamogordo too.

Good luck on your move and congrats on the new home! I hope you get to enjoy your visits to El Paso.
