Days 17, 18 Pictures - Alamogordo to Mayhill to Artesia, NM

Unfortunately, the steep grade was up, not down, out of Alamogordo

Some of the scenery on our 16 mile climb to Cloudcroft

This tunnel helped keep our elevation climb a little lower

The ribbon of white just above the hills is part of the White Sands National Park

An old pedestrian trestle going nowhere

8760 feet, the summit in the village of Cloudcroft
This little banner was found in the Mayhill Baptist church we spent the night in. Inspiring!

Yee Haw! This laid back petting zoo on the way to Artesia. Note the goat on the hood of the truck.

This camel was right at home in dry New Mexico.
