We just got back from our amazing, whirlwind trip to Ruidoso NM again over Thanksgiving – its one of our favorite get-a-ways! This tradition started several years ago after I first had some prints accepted into the Hubbard Museum of the American West annual photo print competition a few years back, and we went to Ruidoso to see the exhibit, now we visit as often as we can!
On Thanksgiving Day, thanks to Cory at the Four Winds Diner in Carrizozo, just north of Ruidoso, we discovered some new backroads, ghost towns, mining towns, etc… and we had a blast with the kids! I managed to get a few decent pics too!
Title: Valle Del Sol
This image of Valle Del Sol and the Sacramento Mountain range, is actually 16 high-res images stitched together, creating one very large panoramic print (no black border)!!!
This incredible valley, located north of Ruidoso & Ski Apache, is full of simplicity and New Mexico charm! I can see why it was such a favorite place for Native Americans. The small town of Nogal can be seen in the lower right corner, while Carrizozo, which is on the valley floor, is hidden behind the foreground mountain. What a view!
An abandoned old ghost town, a few buildings still stand as a reminder of the area’s mining and early years.
