Desperados © Sacramento Mountains Historical Museum on MountainTimes.netThe Sacramento Mountains in southeast New Mexico, USA, are said to be an enchanted place in the state that calls itself The Land of Enchantment. The local newspaper is the Mountain Times, operating out of Timberon: back issues in PDF format are free to read, but avoid the June 2004 issue, one link downloads it as the July 2004 issue; both are password protected as the current issue for subscribers only.

Nearby, in Cloudcroft, NM, is the SMHM [Sacramento Mountains Historical Museum] whose web presence is hosted by the Mountain Times Network. The museum has an online old photo collection, with almost three hundred entries. We chose a mean looking bunch of desperados, but there are sweet young things, locomotives & railways, and logging camps. There is even a scowling appearance by Geronimo! The local [1] history [2] wildlife, and [3] photo pages are worth a visit, with much to explore.

Oh, what a day-to-day business life is.
