Guadalupe Mountains Rim Road Drive. 1-26-2013.




My wife (Diane) and I, and our three dogs left Carlsbad, NM at noon yesterday, and took a drive down the Guadalupe Mountains "Rim Road", or "Forest Road #67." It is a 67 mile drive down this road along the spine of the Guadalupe Mountains from southwest of Queen, where we started, to just east of the Bullis Springs Ranch, southwest of Hope.

 We saw some Virga, mule deer, and a double rainbow at the end of our drive. Not to mention some fantastic scenery. Our journey ended up being 186 miles long. It had been years since I had driven this route, and I had forgotten how much I enjoy this drive.

This old school bus has been on the Bullis Springs Ranch 
for over 50 years. I remember it as a kid when I first went 
up to the ranch (then owned by Carl Lewis) back in the 
1960's when I was 8 years old.

Harmony, Thunder, and Lightning.

Lightning did not like the cattle guard.
