March 12, 2015 Lakewood, NM Carlsbad Caverns

We left Benson, AZ on the 9th. I forgot to show this photos of the Quail.
 And these of the Road Runner. BEEP BEEP.

 In route I took this picture of some of the art work on the AZ over passes.
 We stopped at the SKP Dream-catcher Park in Deming, NM. Don had supper with us. He is retired Navy and Father of MOC friends.
 After Deming we headed to Carlsbad / Roswell, NM. In route saw a sign for the White Sands Missile Museum so we stopped. 

 Old Switch board.
 Target Drone
 Parked at the museum.
 Scud slogans.

 About 20 miles down the road was the White Sands National Monument. We stopped there and meet up with an Everest (rv) with NY tags. The were from Batavia, NY. They (Bruce and Donna) traveled with us to Lakewood at the SKP Ranch Park.

 There is a walking trail between Jim and my RV so we put up this toll.
This rv park is half way between Carlsbad Caverns and Roswell so it works out.
We went to the caverns on the 12th. 

 The Caverns visitor center is on the top of a plateau. That area in the distance is about 800 to 1000 feet below.
