New Mexican Memory

I’ve recently heard multiple people discussing New Mexico, and it reminded  me of our 2011 trip there.  I thought I’d throw a couple photos up that are mere teases of what is available in the southern part of the state. We started in Las Cruces, which was a great little city, then meandered to Alamagordo via White Sands, and finally up to the mountain haven of Ruidoso.   I hope to return when I have more time.  Until then, a few photos.

The fabulous Organ Mountains east of Las Cruces.

White Sands. And this was the less dramatic area.

Hiking near the ski area above Ruidoso. This is the area where Smokey the Bear came from.

Headed back to El Paso, we found a nice spot for a hike.

  1. Those are some white sands!
    I would love to get back to that area of the country. Just don’t know when…

  2. An area of the country I would really like to spend time in. Thanks for the reminder! 🙂

  3. I appreciate the post. I used to spend a lot of time in southern New Mexico while I was in gradschool in Texas. Thanks for the throwback.
