Fort Bayard, Silver City, NM

We leave Alamogordo tomorrow for Brantley State Park where we will be staying for a couple of days so we can check out Carlsbad Caverns.  Once again we may not have internet at the state park so I am going to be behind for a while with my posts!  Here is more of what we saw while we were in City of Rocks SP:

Fort Bayard Historical Landmark located near Silver City was very interesting as it started out as a fort then became an army hospital and finally a VA hospital before being abandonded 40 years ago.  They still give tours around the facility occasionally but don't use the buildings anymore which stand empty now.  We enjoyed a good walk around while stopping to read the story boards here and there.

Silver City has one of those wonderful, eclectic, colorful historical downtown areas with little art galleries and a brewery:)

Silver City Museum

Toad Creek Brewery

I love checking out the architecture

  1. The brewery must be new, as we didn't see it when we were in Silver City last spring for 1 month. We really enjoyed the town and all the surrounding trails and unique areas. Have fun!

We have been on several walks through many state and county parks these past few weeks and I could put pics of these places up, which I love...
