Exploring Mountainous Ruidoso, New Mexico with Photographer Laura Lawson Visconti

Posted By iExplore 38 days ago on Travel - Ruidoso, a small village at the base of the Lincoln National Forest, sits just below 7,000’ and basks in the shadow of Sierra Blanca, the highest peak in the Southwestern United States. Ski Apache, the lowest ski resort in the continental US, serves as a winter vacation destination for many in the area, and is run by the Mescalero Tribe. During the summer months, Ski Apache also boasts one of the longest zip lines in the world, though rogue thunderstorms peppering my time in Ruidoso prohibited me from experiencing it. No matter...I had plenty else to keep me occupied in this quaint mountain town that immediately felt like home.
