We decided to stay an extra night at Santa Rosa, New Mexico and explore the area a bit. We had picked up a travel brochure at the New Mexico border for Santa Rosa, it talked about a sink hole filled with clear blue water, pueblo ruins at Puerto de Luna, an old cemetery , all with glossy photos that made it all seem really nice and something we’d want to see. The price was well within our budget as well, it was all free!
Gary was a scuba enthusiast when we met and often talks about getting re-certified. If he did this would definitely be a place he'd visit.
The Puerto de Luna turned out to be in a very economically depressed town a few miles outside of Santa Rosa and only a few pueblo buildings remained scattered between junked out abandoned vehicles. We were sorely disappointed.
Once I got back to the truck I stood outside of it while Gary gingerly climbed out of the truck, where he had been waiting, and came around to rescue me. He was walking carefully to avoid the same fate I was suffering.
I would have loved to have caught up with it at whatever appearance it was headed for to see it both inside and out. As explained in the hyperlink here: Oscar Mayer Wiener Mobile they carry the hot dog theme throughout the vehicle and it would have been fun to have got to tour it. Oh well, maybe next time.
