A Trip to Alamogordo

Thomas has to be in Alamogordo tomorrow for a meeting so we decided to leave this morning and do a little letterboxing along the way. So we headed out around 8:00am and made our way to Stanley.
Here we found Guardians of Stanley: The Cemetery which was placed by Children of the Forest. This was a pretty easy find once I got past the snow. After stamping in and replacing the box we got back on the road and continued our drive. It was a great day to be on the road - there was no traffic and the weather was fantastic. Our second stop was at Three Rivers Petroglyph Site. We found nmcanchaser's Ancient Writings and Hi Desert's Face in the Rock. Both were quick and easy finds. The next find was just a box hidden on the side of the road. It was Harden My Heart and was a letterbox/geocache hybrid - it was nice to see the stamp was still there. Next we headed to La Luz which is just a little north of Alamogordo and we found cowpatti's Yoga-OM (Aum). I was the first finder of this box and I was glad we made the stop to find it. Then we headed in to Alamogordo and found four more boxes - cowpatti's Flying High and Bark at the Moon (Jim Griggs Multi-Sports Complex), Twinville Trekkers' Beatles Series #17 "Across the Universe" and CT Nite Owl's Scissors Sisterz. We had a nice time letterboxing today and found a great batch of stamps. There are still a few boxes in the area I haven't found yet so I guess another trip will need to be planned.
