Mountainair, New Mexico. Maybe I'm in the bakery.

As I move around, I accumulate villages and cities where I intend to live for at least a month. Those towns are where I'll write the Greater American Novel, or several outstanding blog posts. Mountainair is one of those places. 





Some say the GAN will require more than intention and photographs. I say "pfffft."






I read the information on the outside of the National Forest Service building. A tiny lady peeked around the corner and said "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?"


"I'm reading this information. But what am I doing?" She said "I mean, are you going inside?" I hadn't intended to, and I didn't, but she told me what I wanted to know.


I also intend to find this bakery open one day.




I stopped into a thrift store (the Greyhound building); the woman said, "Well, you're not from here, so where ARE you from?"


The woman at the grocery store charged us for only one coffee, because we took the last of it.


We did not need the police department.


If I'm missing from wherever it is I'm supposed to be, check around Mountainair.

Can't wait to get back to NM!

Good Luck Duck said...

Nan, it's on 60, east of Socorro.

Wonderful little Village, you just can't love New Mexico enough.

Good Luck Duck said...

I agree, Red. It's home. Get back here, Cyndi!

Now that I have my new-to-me tiny travel trailer (took me long enough because no one wrote a book on how to make such a monumental decision...ahem) I am collecting Cool Little Spots for my Must See list. This one, the pie place and a few others you've enticed us with have made the cut. Your photography skills are the draw...simply beautiful colors! Rhonda

Yours is always one of the most colorful blogs I know. You have an eye for photographing the unique. So how the hell are you and how are you traveling? or in what? Spud?

Good Luck Duck said...

Sherry, Spud is the escort vehicle for the class A. I'm doing well, thanks, and thanks for the compliment!

Thank you, Rhondalyn. I also protest the lack of decision manuals, and just don't see how we do so well so much of the time!

HeyDuke - do it!

You're an inspiration. Mountainair is now on the list.

I can see why that town is "on the list":)

Contessa said...

Absolutely fab photos. Gracias.

Great pictures do so much to add to the draw on NM. I think I might have been to the Grey Hound Station back in 82. and it's just possible not

I don't think you want to be found... ;)

I really liked Mountainair a lot. The bakery has delicious stuff, but it's only open on weekends, They have a good farmers market (too early for that yet) and the dining room of the old hotel is a wonder to behold.

Beautiful town! I love the little wall mosaics, especially the one with the snake and Yucca. Quite the subtle police department :-)
