It's Been Awhile
In my first post about the Route 66 ghost town of Cuervo, New Mexico, I republished my photos that were recovered from a visit in 2005. On May 28, 2022 I was able to make it back to one of my favorite ghost towns of all time.
Historic Route 66
In Part 1 of this two part series about the Route 66 ghost town of Newkirk, New Mexico we explored the abandoned structures on the south side of I-40 on Pajarito Rd. In Part 2 we will visit the remaining structures that line historic Route 66 on the north side of I-40.
Newkirk, New Mexico
Ghost town explorers and Route 66 aficionados alike will want to place Newkirk at the top of their list of places to visit in New Mexico.
A Ghost Town?
New Mexico's foremost mine of the late 1800's, the mine and settlement of Kelly now lay in ruin and are completely abandoned. But...who attends this church?
Madrid is a must-see stop on New Mexico's Turquoise Trail
For those travelers touring New Mexico's Turquoise Trail, Madrid will surely be high on the list of "must-see" locations. Even if art galleries and coffee shops aren't your thang, most people like food and the Mine Shaft Tavern has the best burgers around.
Personally, I have no interest in being where the tourists are but there is another secret destination that makes Madrid worthwhile.
