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.
We stopped on our way up the mountain at the Old Apple Barn that had everything amazing in it! I tried some iced Apple Cider which was delicious! Tried some pumpkin spice fudge, also delicious! and picked up some other must have item including a bag of old time candies!
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.
The temperature in Cloudcroft was much colder than at the bottom of the mountain in Alamogordo. On our way to Cloudcroft we saw a pistachio ranch, McGinn’s, and stopped there on our way back. We love pistachios and walking through the door took us into Pistachio heaven!
The sampling station with a dozen or so flavors of pistachios A N D the most wonderful pistachio brittle…….. We shopped and picked up some goodies for us as well as a two pound bag of pistachios for Chip! That’s our Old Apple Barn, Cloudcroft NM, Pistachio adventure in a nutshell!!!! Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear! Click on the links below to go there!
