Las Vegas, New Mexico is a fun, quiet town. I've already expressed my appreciation here.

W♥W... Great photos... Beautiful town... Who knew grasshoppers were so beautiful and clowns are so (((cReEpY)))?! So glad you are happy and having fun... I will be too in a few months... I am driving from Nevada to Minnesota to pick up my new to me class c... I am so exited I can't wait to get to New Mexico. I lived there as a child and it has been calling me back for the last 50 years... Thanks for all the beautiful pictures. Are you still using your little orange Pentax?

You should do their town webpage :-). Even poor little Estella's has some charm left. Wasn't sure if the grasshopper was real or art......although they creep me out (the clown still wins). Keep up the happy - it makes great photos.

I've seen a beautiful grasshopper like that once. Makes me happy that you are so happy. Lately I have been thinking about the town in TX that is now specializing and catering to "tiny house" folk... and thinking that "Vandwellers" should buy a an old town like this, or old motels, someplace where there is no zoning authority, and we could live and let live. Most of us have no Plan B... what to do if we no longer have a vehicle, no longer able to drive, no longer able to take care of ourselves. I wonder if some kind of "blend" is possible... with a smart happy place to live, combined with tiny houses, small campers, tenters, provisions for old gypsies who wish to continue living outside, but might one day not be able to do it on their own???? Sorry got sidetracked.

I haven't been to Las Vegas NM since the 60's and believe me it was not that colorful then. Your pictures are great & it has now made our list to visit this fall. Thanks for the prompting.
