Not too long ago went to Cimarron New Mexico. It's close at a 100 miles. Went into Taos for a day as it's a short fun 50 through the northern mountains of the state.
This town the area and the St. James Hotel is rich in the history of the old west. I urge you to copy&paste to learn for yourself but I will throw in a few things. Nothing special about the pictures except for a couple possibly.
Remember about how they get big twice if you click on them.
This remains pretty much the way it was.
The swinging doors that lead to the rooms down stairs and to the stairway to the upstairs rooms which are the ones that are available to the public.
A lot of the biggies stayed here both good and bad.
Here's an example.
People were killed in the rooms too. I'm not sure about the upstairs.
Here in the bar area quite a few got hammered.
Check it out.
Plenty bullet holes in the ceiling so maybe somebody caught one.
This was a recent entry that was on the table. Things go on here all the time and I was told that for a day a week paranormal types set up cameras. I didn't see anything on my pictures. Don't let yourself get spooked now.
Here's the local jail. You didn't want to get locked up in a jail like this in those days because you're not breaking out of this one.
Read what the sign says.
These are some shots of the local cometary. Of course some of the past local players are there.
The local mill and now museum is pretty impressive.
And worth a visit.
What's unique about this mill is that the water wheel is inside the building.
It's still cowboy country out here.
Not far away is another cemetery from a town that for the most part has disappeared.
This would not be a bad place to hole up for the rest of eternity if that was your choice.
These are just some random shots while I was in Taos.
There are more things to buy and more stores to buy these things in you wouldn't believe.
I do very much like this architecture.
This was the museum associated with the picture above. None of this was for sale.
These are living structures of some sort. Ya I could live here real easy.
If it weren't for the tree this would be a pretty decent picture.
Of all of them I like this the best and is was just off the Plaza in Taos.
I was in the area the 1st of June and it was just late spring. The aspens still had a way to go before they were leafed out completely.
We be small fry's in this business. At least their generator was real quiet.
