Raton, NM August 28, 2017

We had an enjoyable, relaxing five night stay at the NRA Whittington Center near Raton, New Mexico, elevation 6,885 feet.  At this elevation the weather was cooler and the mountain views gorgeous. 20170826_152247

They have a nice museum there as well with many weapons from the west.

One day we drove into Raton for lunch and a little geocaching.  20170830_155848

We stopped in the small local grocery store to pick up some items and noticed elk jerky for sale.  No thanks!IMG_20170830_143220
