On Wednesday we headed out to visit the ghost town of Lake Valley. We had passed here a couple of weeks ago but didn't have time to stop. We both had remembered that the town was closed Monday and Tuesday, we work Thursday and Friday, so away we went. When we pulled in the gate was closed. We pulled up to the gate and just looked each other. You guessed it, closed Tuesday and Wednesday. I guess we are getting old and short of memory. I took some pictures from the gate and headed out. We still want to go back and check out the museum there and have a closer look at all the buildings.
We decide to head to Las Cruces to do a little shopping, Hobby Lobby, and get some lunch. On the way there we passed through the town of Hatch, known as the chili capital of New Mexico. The pic below was repeated all over town.
After leaving Las Cruces, we headed to El Paso so I could look at the Victory motorcycle, the other American made bike. When we left there we stopped at the Harley dealer in town. That is one big dealership. I sure would like to get my boat sold....lol Heading back to Deming, we ran into some pretty rain. We stopped at Subway for a bite and when we came out we were greeted to this site, a double rainbow!!
While we were at Hobby Lobby I picked up a piece of basswood with the bark on. Yesterday, I did a woodburning for the park we are working in.
