Life In New Mexico!

For the first few months of 2017 we’ll be living in Alamogordo, New Mexico while Joe finishes F-16 training.

Alamogordo is a small town in the southern part of the state near Texas. It’s known for the first explosion of the atomic bomb and apparently there’s still a lot of super-secret activities happening in the restricted missile range. Joe loves the flying here–clear skies and lots of airspace.

Although Alamogordo is a desert town, we’re surrounded by mountains and the White Sands National Monument. I can see why they call New Mexico the “Land of Enchantment”. The landscape is surprisingly varied and gorgeous. Here are a few photos taken by Joe.
