I'm going with the philosophy that one night out of town is better than none so Cloudcroft beaconed. Approximately two hours in to the mountains lies this tiny town that seems to be there mostly for summer hiking. It was beatiful in the winter though and we got to experience some of the fresh white stuff. Being that it is a small town most everything was closing down at 1700 so we just did dinner at one of the few restaurants in town. I got this chili cheese burger fitting with the New Mexicans love of this ingredient.
Since nothing much was open we just made ourselves at home at the Crofting Inn until the morning. Breakfast left something to be desired so we made a stop at the local bakery for a pastry. The town has some cute shops and w did a little shopping until it was time to head back home.
