That's exactly where I lived! Alamogordo. I worked at one of the PT clinics in town doing contract work. I loved Cloudcroft, because in about a 20 minute drive up the mountain I felt like I was back in the midwest. Trees, snow, cool weather. The opposite of Alamogordo.
If I had to live in the southern half of the southwest, then Cloudcroft/ Alamogordo would be on the top of my list. Great weather, tons of recreation, & low cost of living. When I was there most the trails in Cloudcroft had snow on them, so I would head down to Mountain Park or start in Alamo & hike up. There was so much to do rec wise I was never bored, even in the winter. (if I keep typing I'm going to type myself into going back this winter)
How was the weather? Any rain?

I to lived in Alamogordo, back in the mid 80s. Was an air traffic controller at Holloman. Made many, if not bi-weekly runs up to Cloudcroft. Do you remember the roadside well up there? I would fill 10 gallons a week at that spot. Been so long, can't remember exactly where it was, but somewhere an the road to Cloudcroft. What a great hiking spot that was.

Very true. I was more excited about cruising around in a jon boat on 460 acres of water than fishing.lol We did see three Bald Eagles do some fishing.

How about this beautiful weather? Temp right now is 79 and breezy... Low tonight is supposed to be 53. There is little to no humidity... I wish summer was always like this... August will be over in the blink of an eye and the leaves will be changing as the birds head south... The comes the beauty of winter...

So how is everyone enjoying this awesome weather?? I wen't for a ride in the car today put on 45 miles... Just hit the back roads and took in the scenery. I couldn't believe how much the birds were singing....

Weather is excellent, I don't do well in weather above probably 75 degrees. So tell me, how was Rhinelander? Did you hit any of the local joints?

karfar, Rhinelander was great! Local joints??? I'm guessing you mean restaurants or bars? I'm only 19 so I don't drink... We did eat at Fishers on Lake George fish was ok. We didn't really catch all that much on the lake, but then again when I wasn't fishing I was crusing around the lake on the jon boat making some waves.


The trip was basically to get away from our politically corrupt town. We needed some relaxation and Rhinelander offers plenty of that!
