Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
We are "haiku-ing" along the Pan American Highway and now we have arrived in Nogales Arizona also known as "New Spain" and that's why I themed this episode "An Epic Journey Through New Spain".
"¡Vayan Subiendo!"("Everyone mount up!") was the rousing call from Juan Bautista de Anza. In 1775-76, he led some 240 men, women, and children on an epic journey to establish the first non-Native settlement at San Francisco Bay. Today, the 1,200-mile Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail connects history, culture, and outdoor recreation from Nogales, Arizona, to the San Francisco Bay Area. A diverse group of 30 migrant families scratched their way across the frontier of New Spain, and carved their way into American history.
More about this "Epic Journey Through New Spain", you can find HERE. Enjoy the read!

Not a strong senryu I think, but it's a scene that points towards the above mentioned journey by Juan Bautista de Anza.
