With the ongoing drought, wildlife are becoming more stressed and looking
for easy meals. If you plan on visiting the Carson National Forest, please
read the flyers on how to deal with wildlife. Thank you.
We decided that maybe we would save on travel expenses and just go up in elevation locally to Ruidoso at 7,000 feet or the Sunspot/Cloudcroft area at 8,663 feet. R.V. Park prices run around $550 a month plus electricity in those locations. We found many r.v. parks in the mountains don't offer cable t.v.. It may be available for an additional price that hasn't been stated. Internet and cell phone signals are iffy in some areas. With our Shady Grove RV Park rent at $245 a month with all the amenities, staying awhile longer started looking good! Once we got over our mini internal tantrums of not being independently wealthy and able to do what we want when we want and for as long as we want, we actually sighed a peaceful sigh of relief at staying put for awhile. Our past experiences of staying in an area longer than we might first choose to do has proven to be a good thing! It makes us delve a little deeper into a community and discover even more exciting things about it! We've discovered that Alamogordo has a great deli, a dog park, and a nice recreation center! Staying for another month will give us time to do a few more things we were regretting we hadn't gotten to do, and will give us time to kick back and do a few home projects.
