A Wet Sunday For Carlsbad.
Cloudcroft, New Mexico.
A Tad Foggy Sunday Afternoon & A Cool 55ºF At 8,751'.
My wife and I took another summer afternoon drive up to Cloudcroft yesterday. Most of the countryside has greened up nicely with the recent rains. We first stopped at Runyan Ranches east of Elk and visited with Camille and Tom and Pam Runyan. Lunch was courtesy of MAD Jacks in Cloudcroft...delicious as always too.
