Where in New Mexico are you? What is the nearest town?
Sure, you may share the photos. I'm not in any town. I'm in the mountains near Ruidoso and Cloudcroft. High today was 18. At 5:25 p.m., it's back down to 13. More single digits tonight.

JECC:

Thanks so much!!

Ok, I know the general area where you are. Soooooooo pretty and such wonderful country.

I was hoping to go skiing at Ruidoso this year if I don't get to move. They were only 12% open all year last season.

I notice that your office building is stucco/adobe/facimile thereof.....are there very many structures in town that are like that, or mostly frame? Brick?
No problem. There isnt a great amount of stucco buildings in town, which is good because im not a great fan of them. Most of the buildings are brick, frame etc.

Ouch. A typo I made yesterday that I can't correct now.....facsimile...!!!!

I love stucco, and I would be thrilled to find one when I go house-hunting, but I'm not counting on it. Brick will be fine.

Any particular reason that mountain is called Rabbit Ears.....?

Heres a pic of my RC Plane over the Ears, i like that pic.
The Rabbit Ear Mountains are actually volcano's and are named for a Cheyenne Chief, Orejos de Conjeo, who died in a battle with Spanish colonists in 1717. He us burried up there. THey kind of look to me like they were one, and collapsed somehow ? But I'm not an expert on volcanos so i dont know.

I'd love to be able to do walking tours up them sometime in the future, not sure if the state would go for it though.

Brian ... I have a Rabbit Ear question, too.

We drive through Clayton at least every other year, and my husband insists the Rabbit Ear Mountains are about 50 miles from Clayton. I said I am SURE they are closer....when we reach the view of the Rabbit Ears, I know we are almost to Clayton...within maybe ten miles.

Can you solve this argument we are having?

Thanks for clearing that up, Brian.

Several people enjoyed your photo, and were asking me why it was called that. I didn't have a clue!!
