5 Day Tour To Ruidoso NM

September 11, 2017 - September 15, 2017

We did a scouting trip to Ruidoso, NM last September.  This area was recommended to us by Paul Hart on an OPMC drive through Truth or Consequences.  We found the area very scenic and recommend a club drive to the area for Monday, September 11, 2017.

The trip will take 5 days.  Starting in Catalina we will drive to Silver City, NM via Globe and Safford.  Safford will be our lunch stop. The second day we will drive to Ruidoso, NM with a stop at the high elevation town of Cloudcroft.

The third day in the morning we will visit some of the towns and sites of the Ruidoso area including Capitan, the home of Smokey the Bear, historic Fort Stanton, Lincoln State Monument, and Hondo.

Later that day drivers have some choices for site seeing or driving: The road to Ski Apache starting at Alto just north of Ruidoso, Inn of the Mountain Gods Resort and Casino, White Sands NM south of Alamogordo and the Three Rivers Petroglyph National Site.

The fourth day we will drive to Eagar, AZ with lunch planned in either Pie Town or Magdalena.

On day five we will drive home.

We will be using two -way radios.  If you own one or more bring them with you.  Set your radio to channel 6.

We will be staying at the following hotels.
