    Alamogordo Things to Do

    Both Chris and I grew up with the Space Race, and both of us have a clear memory of the Moon Landings, especially the first, so a visit to a museum that documents it all was a must! The museum sits on a hill on the east side of Alamogordo, and we were here on a very windy day so we really felt the force of it up here. We could see the effect of the...

    Acoma Pueblo Things to Do

    I have no pictures of the cemetery, as all photography of it is strictly forbidden, but it is too interesting a place not to mention it here. It lies in front of the church (out of shot on the left of my photo) and is even older than it. It was not part of the Acoma tradition to bury their dead, but with the adoption of some of the Spanish...

  • Church of San Esteban

    Acoma Pueblo Things to Do

    The most prominent building in the pueblo is the Church dedicated to San Esteban, that is St Stephen. It was built between 1629 and 1641 by the Acoma people under the direction of their Spanish conquerors. Some accounts say that the Spanish forced them to build the church, others that the people were grateful to the Catholic friar, Juan Ramirez,...

    Carlsbad Restaurants

    This is a family owned place with a homey atmosphere; old photos on the walls including Marilyn Monroe, old coke and Dr. Pepper signs, etc. Many of the staff have a similar look so maybe they are family. My waitress was named Steph and she was cute with a great smile, friendly, efficient, and 8 months pregnant. She earned a big tip. The menu had a...

    Carlsbad Things to Do

    The cave is almost on another planet-way out there off Hwy 62/180. Traffic can back up on this highway. The big cave opening is 8.2 acres for the Big Room. It is about 1 mile trek through this part. The other way in is the Natural Entrance which is the large opening when the cave was first found. It has a hike of around 1.4 miles.

    Socorro Restaurants

    Socorro Springs is probably THE place to go in town to eat. They offer various pizza, calzone, pasta dishes and a salmon dish along with a great 12 ounce rib-eye cooked over a pecan wood fire. There are also soups, salads, burgers and sandwiches if you are less hungry. They serve a wide variety of beers, ales and lagers. Decor is nice and classy....

    Well by clicking on this map it gets big enough to at least read some place names. The different colors on the map represent different ownership. Green for national forest, blue for state land, Gold is federal, and white is private. Most of NM is public land either federal or state owned.

    Deming Things to Do

    I was never a soaker, spending time to sit in a bath just seemed a waste of time. Then one day I was just so incredibly achy, I gave it a go. I go at least once a month now, sometimes more! This is a must especially for those who just want to take a break and relax or soothe away their aches and pains. The water is artesian which means it is safe...
