I love this picture. Notice the New Mexico state colors. I’m also thinking that it’s quite a deal for a town of fewer than a thousand souls to even have a visitor center. And you see how bright it looks? How strong the sun must be? Well, it was, but by 11:00 a.m. Sunday morning, the temperature was still under 70 °F with a pretty good breeze. All you need for June or any other month, though the women may desert you if you roll the window down too far.

I always love passing through that old town with the pretty name. The old haunted hotel and buildings are a treat to walk through and admire. You might even see a few bullet holes in the hotel.

Cimarron is the “gateway city” to Philmont Scout Ranch, the huge (over 214 square miles!) wilderness High Adventure base for the Boy Scouts of America.
