If you are visiting Southwestern United States and in particular the state of New Mexico, your tour cannot be complete if you fail to visit the Lincoln National Forest Alamogordo NM. The forest is named after the 16th president of USA, Abraham Lincoln. It was also mad e famous as the birthplace of Smokey Bear, the animal who has come to symbolize the concerted campaign against forest fires.
When visiting the forest, you need to stop and take a look at the recently restored and preserved Mesa Barn, the home of Smokey Bear. It is a striking resemblance to the original barn that had its prime in the 1930's. Restorers have done all they could to restore the old timbers to their original colors.
The Mexican canyon trestle vista is nearing completion and is another site worth visiting. It provides for a panoramic view of surrounding landscapes. Although not officially launched, visitors are already using it to enrich their visit. This is another reason why you should not keep postponing your visit indefinitely. There is as well a sneak preview of all the features that will soon be launched including signs and updated history.
The new Bridal Veil Falls trail has just been opened and connects with the more traditional Grandview trail and Salado Canyon Trestle trail. Construction has taken the better part of the last couple of years. This new trail offers hikers a route into the wild and vistas that are hard to replicate elsewhere on the range. However, there are still more works underway to provide for an experience of a lifetime in the future.
The mark of a great tour is providing variety to the visitor. While modern life gives so little opportunity to get in close contact with nature, the opportunity to visit Lincoln National Forest Alamogordo NM is one such opportunity. There is plenty of activities to indulge in for the discerning visitor as well as locals.
