Re: The left plays both sides of the fence (Was: Ology of [T]Error)

Google Earth's elevation profile shows several peaks in excess of 6000', in particular north of El Medio, Mexico, and in the range between Nogales, Mexico and Douglas, NM. The higher elevations tend to be on the north side of the border, so it'd be more problematic to build away from the border. One could cut through the mountains, but getting anywhere near the elevation of Las Cruces would be a geotechnical nightmare.

Any number of images you get if you Google New Mexico Elevation Map show routes through southern NM that stay under 5000'.

Actually, the bigger problem would be California. You're below sea level in the Imperial Valley; then you have to build a staircase to get over the mountains, which again get close to 5000', to bring you to San Diego. There you have no choice but to pump water from sea level, whether from the Colorado River or from the Pacific Ocean. Though I suppose Olog would just use a bunch of A-bombs to blast away the mountain range between the Imperial Valley and the Pacific.
