Mogollon, New Mexico

Annie and I took the 12 mile drive to the mining town of Mogollon.  Definitely not a road for people who are afraid of heights.  The  road climbs up to about 10000 feet elevation and gets narrower and steeper as you go.  Definitely one lane most places with blind curves and drop offs with seemingly no bottoms.  Spectacular views of the valleys when you can find a pull-out.
Mogollon is still alive but barely.  Mining has dried up and a few people hang on by tourism.  Artists from Texas filled the streets in the 50's and 60's.

I was told this was once a gallery.
