Highway 52, between Magdalena and Truth or Consequences

We were delighted to discover this area of the state. It has a few communities that are called ghost towns, yet they clearly have active communities in them. Much of the road is a dirt road, but a good one. It took us longer than expected to travel it because we stopped so often for photographs.
