The last town before the crossing, Hachita, is 45 miles north of the border, and is little more than a crossroads that doesn’t merit a stop sign, let alone a traffic light. The Old Hachita copper and silver mining settlement from the 1870s is now a ghost town that lures the occasional tourist, but the actual town has a ghostly feeling, too. The railroad came and went, the ties torn up in the 1960s. A saloon, schools, Pearl’s Cafe and even the gray stone St. Catherine of Siena church have been abandoned.
