0.172 acre town lot in Carrizozo, New Mexico just on the edge of town in a cute neighborhood. There's water and sewer in the street and power along the back of the lots. It's within an hours drive of Alamogordo and Ruidoso and the Lincoln National Forest in the Sacramento Mountains is your playground! It's centrally located between Albuquerque, El Paso and Lubbock, Texas in Lincoln County.

All of the photos were taken of the property and its surrounding views in August 2016. Aspen Street runs along the south of the property and was being paved and new sidewalks when we viewed it! The property is flat with power running along back of property. The railroad tracks run about 500 feet north of the property line. There is a very cute neighbor across street with fenced yard.

There's an old stucco home next door to the NE which was an old adobe style looking home that was abandoned, or at least looks abandoned. Hmmm I thought to myself, more opportunity for the buyer who is looking for a project and make this all one nice place at the end of the block!

The area was pretty quiet with occasional car driving by. There are mountain views from the NW to the SW from one mountain range to another taller one! To the NW is a pretty view of the wide open green valley that goes for miles to the north of town. Across the valley from the NE to the SE are the Carrizozo Mountains and the Sacramento Mountains, home of the Lincoln National Forest!

Carrizozo is a sleepy little town of about 1000 people and the county seat for Lincoln County. It sits down on the valley floor at the northern tip of the Tularosa Basin just NW of the Sacramento Mountains and west of the Capitan Mountains so you have the Lincoln National Forest as your playground!

I've been here a few times now and each time it was a lot nicer weather down on the valley floor than up on the mountain in Ruidoso. I see that the average temperature is about 10 degrees warmer and boasts of 286 sunny days per year! The average high in July is 89 and the January low is 22.

We stayed for a few nights as Carrizozo is the county seat. I discovered the famous fried burritos at Allsup's, the gas station at the busy intersection! I'm not one to eat junk food out of gas stations but without a lot of choices that night I was pleasantly surprised. And since then every time I've seen an Allsup's I've said STOP I NEED A BURRITO! They started in Ruidoso in the 50's and introduced their burritos in the 70's! But to find a coffee shop and donut in the morning we had to venture to the side streets in the small cute town and I was thinking wow this town sure could use some more restaurants!

I think these cute building lots in this sleepy little town would make for a great home away from the hustle and bustle of the big city! If you're a small town girl like me and looking for an inexpensive little place to grow some roots and enjoy the Land of Enchantment this is worth checking out. With water and sewer already in the street you won't have to drill a well or install a septic! Enjoy! Char the Explorer : )

Lincoln County Area Photos of Carrizozo, White Oaks, Capitan, Ruidoso and Alto!

Welcome to Lincoln County, New Mexico, the ultimate playground in the southwest from Sierra Blanca aka the White Mountains at 11,981 feet to the beautiful open valleys of Carrizozo at 5429 feet. Wow was my head spinning the first time I visited here in 2016!

A video of our trip around Lincoln County!

Carrizozo sits in the shadows of the Sacramento Mountain Range at the northern edge of the Tularosa Basin. It’s a quiet little town and the county seat about 45 minutes NW of Ruidoso. About 15 minutes NE is the ghost mining town of White Oaks, famous for the No Scum Allowed Saloon. We headed up there our first night to see if they truly had some of the coldest beer in Lincoln County to find them closed! But it’s a cute little town and I enjoyed the historical buildings over 100 years old!

Since we didn’t find any cold beer we decided to visit the Lincoln County Fair in Capitan! That sure was a fun time and my first pig show I must admit! I took so many photos of it that I made an entire video of just the fair! It was a small friendly fair and I’m sure I stuck out like a sore thumb, especially after my comment about the “sparkly pig”. The gal who was getting ready to go into the arena with her pig looked at me and said no that’s just the pig! Wow was that some serious pig driving as I watched two women keep their pig in the judges view as best as possible! Well turns out he was a sparkly pig as they took away the blue ribbon! Hot dog! I also got several photos of a mean goat giving several good head butts to a baby goat. It’s funny now looking at the photos but it wasn’t so funny at the moment! I learned that there really is a duck with a pom pom hairdo called a crested duck! I thought someone had somehow done that to them!

The Lincoln Count Fair in Capitan!

Capitan is also home of Smokey Bear. I’ve been a huge fan of his since I started traveling across the western USA, frequently stopping to take my picture with him when I see his fire danger signs! Oh I was thrilled when I finally got a chance to stop into the museum. As I walked in I declared “my life is now complete” and the gal behind the counter laughed and said I definitely wasn’t the first one to come thru those doors and say that! So a quick picture with my hero!

In 1950 a fire destroyed 17,000 of forest and grasslands. A fire crew found the frightened bear cub clinging for life to the side of a burnt pine tree. He was so badly burnt they named him “Smokey Bear”. He was flown to Sante Fe and upon recovery was sent to a zoo in Washington DC. In 1962 NM adopted the Black Bear as the State Animal and sent him a bear companion, Goldie. Upon his death in 1976 he returned to his home in the Capitan Mountains.

The mountain village of Ruidoso is a thriving scene people flock to all four seasons! It’s 100 miles to the closest interstate and 2 hours from the nearest commercial airport yet people come here year round for winter skiing at Ski Apache, summer hiking and fishing, golf courses, art galleries, restaurants, and to relax with to the smell of pine trees and streams winding their way thru the forest. It is surrounded by the Lincoln National Forest and there is a network of hiking trails! We spotted deer and elk while driving around town and read that black bear, wild horses and the rare mountain lion also call this home!

It’s also home of the Ruidoso Downs Race Track, a tradition since the 1940’s. It’s famous for the showcase All American Futurity, the world’s richest two year old race which was a $3 million purse in 2015! The Labor Day event drew a record of 25,000 fans which is more than live in Lincoln County!

Billy the Kid Scenic Byway visitors center sits next door to the Hubbard Museum of the American West. I didn’t get a chance to view the museum but the beautiful monuments of horses outside the museum was well worth the drive by! Billy, born Henry McCarty, was an American Old West gunfighter who joined the Regulators and participated in the Lincoln County War. The Kid allegedly shot and killed two deputies, but was never indicted for the murders.
