10.23.15 Old Apple Barn, Cloudcroft NM,and McGinn’s Pistachio Ranch

Saturday, October 23, 2015 – One day we left the desert and drove up a mountain to Cloudcroft, NM.  It’s a quaint little town with lots of shopping opportunities! The amazing thing is that you leave the warmer desert at the bottom and as you drive up the trees become green, lush and taller all along the way.

While in Cloudcroft I was so focused on shopping that not many pictures were taken – yes that does happen!  The first photo is a panoramic photo that I grabbed off of the internet.
