    Driving thru NM I see a vine type plant growing on the side of the road. i've not stopped to check it but it appears to have an orange flower bloom. It grows along the ground, but I have seen it climb on a fence if it gets near one.

    Doesn't look like any honeysuckle I've ever seen.

    Just a thought when you mentioned a vine with orange flowers.

    A photo or better description than a vine with orange flowers would help to narrow it down.
