Yesterday we made a round trip to Alamogordo and came back by the way of Cloudcroft. Saw these signs and I thought maybe it will have a "cooling" effect on everyone.




Ski Apache from Apache Summit on highway 70.




The tunnel on highway 82 west of Cloudcroft.

That's no train a coming....

The view from the lookout west of Cloudcroft. That is White Sands National Monument in the background.

Great pictures. Thanks
I have been snowed and sleeted on in Cloudcroft on July the 4th. LOL. And the afternoon showers are also great.
Is the old Rail bridge still there on the West side of CC or has it burned.

I love that drive from Sunspot all the way back to Cloudcroft. In a few short weeks the hills will start singing with Elk bugles. I'm headed that way in late September. Thanks for sharing the photos. Baker

These little meadows are what I find the most fascinating. You never know what you will see at any time of the day. They all look alike and sometimes are miles apart.

Sorry about the pic quality these were taken at highway speed through dirty windows.
