Red Hatters Tour Malkerson 408 Gallery in Carrizozo, New Mexico

Saturday, February 24, 2018

Members of the New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter of the Red Hat Society in Alamogordo, New Mexico took a day trip to Carrizozo, New Mexico to explore the "A Rose is a Rose is a Rose" display at the Malkerson 408 Gallery. There were various art forms depicting roses and it was quite interesting.

After touring the art gallery, we walked down the street to the Photography Studio which happens to be owned by the husband of the woman running the art gallery. The photography is stunning and they always have the latest photography contest winners pictures on display from the New Mexico Magazine.

Afterwards, we returned to Alamogordo to lunch at The Local. I was always taught not to say anything if you can't say something positive so I will leave it with this was a most unsatisfactory experience.

They reciprocated by taking our picture. L to R: Bobbie, Darla Shelley, Alice Evans, Jean Courtier, Margie Purcella, Carla Kerr, Gail Swineford and Trudy Reese (Lu must have been shopping!)

We are now back in Alamogordo at The Local for lunch
As you can see, my salad came in a to-go box! I was not a happy camper.
Lu Mattson was with us, but she somehow escaped my camera. Also, I apologize because I was busy shopping at the art gallery and didn't take as many pictures as I should have.

This is all I have to say for now.
