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:
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. 🐾
