REFLECTIONS ON TRIP TO RUISODO, NM JULY 2014

We spent several days in Ruidoso New Mexico for the Ruidoso Fine Art Festival, July 25-28, 2014. Rather than an extensive write up this time, I thought I'd post photos and some captions to let them tell the story. Enjoy!

CONTRASTING LANDSCAPES...

This was near Roswell, only about 75 miles from Ruidoso. But what a difference those miles make as you'll see!
Grindstone Lake, just west of downtown Ruidoso, New Mexico.
A beautiful sunset over Carrizo Creek Lake near the Inn of the Mountain Gods resort.

 
David took this photo of a public golf course that surrounds the Ruidoso Convention Center where the show was held.

SHOW TIME...

Yes, we were in Ruidoso for more than than just sightseeing. Here are some pics from our booth at the Ruidiso Fine Art Festival. It was a wonderful show!




MORE SIGHTSEEING AND PLAY TIME...

Since we were already there, we decided to stay over an extra day to take some drives around the area. The most memorable was doing up to Ski Apache. The views were just amazing!
 



Headed north for another side trip where we found a great breakfast at the Smokey Bear Restaurant in Capitan, NM. Yes, this are is the home to "THE" Smokey the Bear

AND, OF COURSE, WE SAW LOTS OF WILDFLOWERS! Here's just a small sampling...










So that's some of the highlights of our trip. 
AS ALWAYS, THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST!
