Carrizozo, Uniquely Unique

On my way to visit the grave of Smokey the Bear at Capitan, New Mexico,

 then I stopped for food and was hooked.
Coffee served in a Christmas mug
neat little place, and nicely decorated, added bonus was free Wi-Fi
cheerful waitress, calling the few customers "Luv"
if you're ever in Carrizozo, drop in the 4 Winds Restaurant at 111 Central Ave.
I had learned about the "painted burros" see yesterday's post here The waitress told me 12th street was the street next to the restaurant, when I left I drove that way. I stopped in the middle of the street a lot with the camera up to the window or the windshield.

You have to remember several artist live on this street.

This Ice Cream Parlor is located in one of two buildings listed in the National Historic Sites.

This was first named Spider Park because of the design of the fountain, but the name was later changed to McDonald Park to honor the first Governor of New Mexico.

A  museum housed in an old frozen food locker (a pretty cool place to see).
