Monjeau Peak

Old Linen postcard of Monjeau Lookout from 1948. Today, to escape the heat, we took a drive up to Ruidoso to visit it. Monjeau looks the same, except the trees have grown up and you cannot get the same photo. By the time I could see the building, I was too close to get a shot of the enitre lookout.

It is a view that rivals any I have seen in Colorado, Virginia and Montana. It takes about 2 hours to get there from Alamogordo, but is WELL worth the drive. The best part is that it was 69 degrees up there and 100 in Alamo. What a relief!

Spectacular from every direction!
