From the long ride home. I couldn’t drive past the tiny, near-ghost town of Desert Center without stopping for a few photos. (Photo taken with an iPhone 5s.)

I’m a bit obsessed with fire escapes and seek them out whenever I’m in the city. (In this case the city was surprisingly-urban Las Vegas, New Mexico.) I had never seen one like this before though! Photo taken with an iPhone 5s.

Another Las Vegas, New Mexico ghost sign. If you’re a fan of these evocative and intriguing links to the past, you’ll love Las Vegas. They have a lot of them there!

There’s so much more to New Mexico than Santa Fe and Taos. I loved the urban vibe of Las Vegas and count my day there as one of the highlights of my trip. Not bad considering my visit was an afterthought and almost didn’t happen!
