A Day at the Rodeo

Magdalena, New Mexico
July 11, 2009

The annual three-day village party returned for its 38th year of fun with rodeos, music and, of course, barbecue.

Magdalena has recently been trying to transform itself into an art center and cultural destination. The opening of at least a dozen art galleries, a woolery, the renovation of the Bank West Building and the Magdalena Hall Hotel have all made their mark on this mountain village. Several rock and mineral shops have been around since the mining boom days. The ghost town of Kelly, and 2 important festivals: the Lady Magdalen Art Walk, and the Old Timers Reunion and Rodeo bring tourists to the area.

Odds and Ends

From around the Socorro area this past week...

San Jose Mission Church in San Acacia, New Mexico.

Windmills of Lemitar, New Mexico.

Sunset over Strawberry Peak (7,021 ft.), Socorro, New Mexico.

Old gas station sign Socorro, New Mexico.
Sign, sign everywhere a sign
Blocking out the scenery breaking my mind
Do this don't do that can't you read the sign?
