We moved to Valley of Fires NRA and this was our view. We had a huge site.
We drove into Carrizozo a few miles down the road. Walked around town.
Then it was out toward White Oaks geocaching along the way.
They have enlarged it since we were there adding an outdoor patio and stage.
Even geocached in the snow. (See Bob's red hat?)
And saw other interesting places along the way.
We again did another trip. This time we drove into the mountains near Ruidoso. The Forest Ranger told Bob not to miss the 12 mile drive to Ski Apache. As you can see we did.
Then there was Smokey Bear country.
