Southern Bliss....as for Cabins up there i have never personally stayed at them because we always camped at the campgrounds there when we were kids and teens. I have had people people tell me in the past that the ''Spruce'' cabins and the ''Buckhorn'' cabins are the best for Cloudcroft. They're right in the heart of town. Just remember if the Forest is closed then i'm not sure if only the Campgrounds are closed or all the Hiking trails along the Rim also. You may want to call the Lincoln National Forest and ask them what you can and can't do and/or maybe calling the Chamber of Commerce up there as i listed both sites for info and numbers for you. I hear they have Helicoptors patrolling the Mountains looking for fires.

If you ever make it up there sometime Southern Bliss one thing you'll notice is you can smell all the Pine in the air up there as it's almost an eroctic scent if i'm making sense....lol...... I just roll my windows down in my vehicle when i'm up there and the scent is just powerful to me

I'm not sure why they won't allow swimming....maybe it's to preserve the ''Pristineness'' of the mountains. Yeap i have seen people jump in and swim before but i guess they just chance it. Also the water in those lakes are extremely murkey and there are snakes that swim in them and also the water in them is very chilly as you would hardly breath if you jumped in i assume.

But it is beautiful up in them as that's why i like Alamogordo as your only 10 minutes from the cities northern edge to the Tunnel and once thru your in Pine Trees and forest for 100's of square miles. I think that's part of the reason Alamo is swelling with Retirees and Sunbirds moving there. Like being up in Colorado or Montana and yet only a 100 miles or so from the American/Mexican border.

Thats funny Muhnay, thats where i got lost on my trip last march to Ruidoso, it was beautiful, nothing but huge pine trees surrounding us. We saw a huge moose too, it was nice, nothing but winding roads, trees, stars, and cloudless skys.

There are two Independence Day parades; one on the east side (33 years old) and the west side. The east side will end at Album park and there will be all kinds of activities. Ascarate and Chamizal will have Independence Day celebrations and fireworks.

I remember when Ft. Bliss had firework displays in the 70's. why don't they have them anymore? The country clubs will also have celebrations and fireworks.

For fireworks there's nothing like the Montana Wars. Kind of spectacular and pretty unsafe. Down by the river it gets pretty nuts too.

Southern Bliss..... i heard on the news that the Lincoln National forrest wil open up to people on July 2 so if you decide to go there you can hike all the rim trails or hangout wherever up there. Just no Campfires as it's extremely dry up there still.
