Billy the Kid National Scenic Byway ~ Capitan
The Smokey Bear Historical Park is located on highway 380 (better known as 118 W. Smokey Bear Blvd.) in the Village of Capitan.
The Village of Capitan is pretty and so are the surrounding lands.
This home was catty-corner to the park on Smokey Bear Blvd.
While there we heard about the Billy the Kid National Scenic Byway. It spans US 380 from Capitan to Hondo. Here, it joins US 70 towards Ruidoso. NM 48 will take you back to Capitan or you can take NM 220 at Alto to Ft. Stanton.
We decided to try to visit as much of the Byway as possible before dark. And it was certainly scenic. These landscapes were shot between Capitan and Lincoln.
Stay tuned for more of what we saw on Billy the Kid National Scenic Byway!
"We should understand well that all things are the work of the Great Spirit. We should know the Great Spirit is within all things: the trees, the grasses, the rivers, the mountains and the four legged and winged peoples; and even more important, we should understand that the Great Spirit is also above all these things and peoples. When we do understand all this deeply in our hearts, then we will fear and love and know the Great Spirit, and then we will act and live as the Spirit intends" ~ Black Elk
