Ghostriders in the Bootheel of Southwest New Mexico

Camped outside this saloon and had the best sweet potato fries at this awesome joint. They let me camp outside on their lot in the dead heat of summer down in the boot heel of New Mexico near the border. The owner stated I was much better off at his place than camping somewhere in the boonies along the border due to the nocturnal activity that takes place in this part of the state due to coyotes and smugglers. I heed the advice of locals if they are friendly enough. They did had many stories to tell, the kind that would inspire the Coen Brothers to make a film. There is a lot of rugged untamed beauty in #bootheel!
