Albuquerque to Cloudcroft, New Mexico

On Friday, July 27, 2018, I traveled to Cloudcroft from Albuquerque. When I pulled onto I-25, I saw the most incredible Orange Full Moon. I was thinking what a great way to end my road trip with such a great image; however, the image is only now in my mind’s eye. There was no exit for eleven miles. Sometimes, you just don’t get the shot! I always like to stop by Cracker Barrel for a good breakfast. A roadrunner walked by the front door just after they opened at 6:00 AM. There were rabbits near the parking lot. And, I watched several hot air balloons rise as I enjoyed my breakfast. New Mexico has some wonderfully unique rest areas. I stopped by Carrizozo, New Mexico before driving up the mountain to visit with my brother before returning home to Texas. The Tularosa Basin Gallery of Photography is said to be the largest photography gallery in the state of New Mexico. Thirty or more New Mexico photographers display their work there. They open at 10:00 AM and close at 5:00 PM. I encourage visitors to stop by and carefully look at all the images. It’s a “must” stop!
