Members of the New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter of the Red Hat Society in Alamogordo, New Mexico took a day trip to Fort Stanton, New Mexico to explore and learn more history of this fabulous state. It did not turn out exactly as envisioned (State funding has been cut way back) but we made the best of it anyway.
The museum is stock full of antiques and information about the soldiers and Apaches who inhabited the area. One could actually spend the whole day in the museum thoroughly studying and reading all available historical information of this area.

This is all I have to say for now.
