On the drive east, one of the stops, was near Portales, New Mexico, at the location of the discovery of the Clovis Culture. Here was found the Clovis point and other implements in association with extinct Pleistocene megafauna such as Columbian mammoth, ancient bison, large horses and large turtles. We had visited the associated museum at Eastern New Mexico State University in a previous visit. Unfortunately, the tour of the Blackwater Draw was closed and by the time we arrived here from Alamogordo, the temperature had dropped from 20 C to 12 C.
