Regulators... Mount Up!!!

The last leg of our trip through New Mexico was to Lincoln County and Raton. It was beautiful. You would never know that you are in NM because it is so green there. Lincoln County is famous for the Lincoln County Wars. If you saw any of the Young Guns movies growing up then you know what I am talking about. This is what made Billy the Kid famous. Basically the man he was working for here was murdered and this is where he began to avenge his death.

Here is a picture of the Regulators. They were the group that road with Billy the Kid

This is the bullet hole where Billy shot the deputy and escaped from prison.

Kiddos pretending to be in jail.

A picture of Billy the Kid. This place was so cool and full of information. If you are a fan of the Old West then you need to go here! The town is small but you can walk and vist several of the orginal buldings from the time of the Lincoln County War.

Carlsbad Caverns

Our second stop on visting the Land of Enchantment was Carlsbad Caverns. I was amazed. They are quite beautiful. The girls really thought that it was cool. My Dad hadn't been there since he was a boy scout. Few tips for those who want to visit. It is always around 58 degrees year round there so bring a sweater or buy one there . It's really too dark to take pictures unless you have a low light lens. And invest in the hand held radios for the tour. They give you a lot of neat info. Take the elevator down. It saves you walking 1.5 miles and you don't miss a thing. You go down 700 ft in about a minute. It's crazy how your ears pop.

Much pretty in person.

Mom, Dad and Ali

One picture that wasn't too bad.

Overall I would say that it is a great family vacation spot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Roswell and it's Aliens

We decided that we needed to go on vaction in our own state and see what it has to offer. This particular trip had three stops, Roswell, Carlsbad Caverns, and Lincoln County. I admit I had low expectations but wow did we have fun! I recommend doing this for all families that live in the state or surrounding areas! We invited my parents to some with us and they had fun too. Here are the pictures from our stop in Rowell. I got onto and found our that the hot spot to stop isn't the Alien Museum but a little whole in the wall store called The Alien Zone. It is so cheezy but the kids had a blast. Here are some pictures we took with the aliens.

A world up-side-down

When you got to go you got to go!

We found the crash site!

I thought this poster was funny!

The kids made some new friends

We even stayed and ate with them!
