The Escapees Ranch, Lakewood, New Mexico

Wednesday, February 15, 2012
 Dreamcatcher RV Park - Deming, NM partly sunny today 31 degrees. I had to cleanup Buster and Silver Sally, yesterday’s "weather" was all over the windows, the dust and rain drops made a mess of the windshield’s.
Climbing out of  Los Cruces on US 70

The Escapees Ranch RV Park, Lakewood, New Mexico 61 degrees and sunny.
Our biggest travel day this year 258 miles. It could have been shorter by eight miles but it is easier driving the interstates and go around Los Cruces, NM on the east side than on US 70 thru town and the traffic lights.
Going down the other side headed to Alamogordo
This snow cap is north of Alamogordo
US 70 to Alamogordo, NM where we switched to US 82 east to Artesia, NM. We traveled thru Cloudcroft at 8,650, feet there was snow on the edge of the road above seventy-five hundred feet and the roads were clear as none of the snow was recent. Alamogordo to Cloudcroft Buster is climbing from 4,200 feet to 8,650 in sixteen miles it is a quick rise. Cloudcroft to Artesia is a sixty mile slow decent to 3,500 feet. From Busters location in Yuma, Arizona to The Ranch the way we traveled it was 782 miles. The actual traveling were five days.

Entering The Ranch

  We got Buster parked on our site and started setting up then went to happy hour at four o’clock. For dinner we went to Artesia with a group of eighteen to The Pecos Diamond, a stake and salad bar menu. Our friends Don and Doris are going tomorrow to California to visit his sister who is in failing health. A send off dinner for them.
