Cloudcroft, NM

After our stay in Artesia, we headed north to Cloudcroft. We stayed in the National Forest at Upper Karr Canyon Campground. It is run by the Forest Service and we had the place nearly to ourselves all three nights:

It is a beautiful place with lots of hiking and history. Below is the Mexican Trestle Bridge. Can you imagine riding a train on those rails?! 😱

We took the steep (4000 ft) descent into Alamogordo and White Sands. It was difficult to say goodbye to Cloudcroft. So beautiful and chilly (50s in the day and 30s at night). We are staying on BLM (Bureau of Land Management) lands for the next two nights. We have a great site and will write an upcoming post on White Sands and the Organ Mountains. 

Also: Sig, a furry friend to many, is currently MIA. Please keep your fingers crossed that he returns home to Tim K. soon. Thank you. 🐾

  1. Hi Guys,
    It was so great talking with you yesterday! When your number popped up I was so excited and anxious to hear your voice!!
    The pictures are just incredible…..what imemories you are making! The list of people who want to do what you are doing just continues to grow….you two are inspiring people to get out there and see this great land of ours. So now you can add Mikie P and Harry to the list.
    So sorry to hear about Sig…maybe he just went off to pout for a bit and will return soon. Please keep me posted!
    Enjoy every second of this trip and thank you for making us feel like we are part of it through your blog!!
    Can’t wait to see you in July! We have talked it over and decided we won’t charge you for the use of the outdoor shower ….at least the first one anyway!
    Thanks again for the great posts and for calling….we miss you and we love you! Continue to have a great time! xoxo, Mozzie
