We're having a great time in New Mexico. The weather has been mostly hot with temps in the 80's and 90's. It's very dry so it's not too bad but we're slowly making our way to the northern parts of New Mexico for some cooler temps. We left Hobbs and spent a week in Artesia, mostly just to wait for our mail to arrive at the campground where we were staying. I'm really not crazy about private campgrounds but they have their advantages sometimes. We were glad to leave there and head to the first of the many New Mexico State Parks we plan to visit.
Before we left Artesia, we took a walk around the downtown area. I'm always impressed by the efforts these small, Southwestern towns make to bring some art and beauty to their city. Artesia was no exception. They had a series of statues throughout the town paying tribute to the Loving-Goodnight Cattle Drives.
I hope you enjoyed today's pictures! Thanks for stopping by.
