Lincoln National Forest in New Mexico has two discontiguous regions; we camped in the Guadalupe Ranger District section before our visit to Guadalupe Mountains National Park, and after leaving the park we drove through the other section, which covers the Sacramento Mountain range.
On our way through the mountains we stopped at a farm market on the roadside, Tom and Pam Runyon’s Ranch. After loading up on pickled vegetables we discovered to our delight that this market also offers a petting zoo. And it is baby season! We spent a long time watching the adorable antics of tiny goat kids, lambs and even a baby llama.
When we finally tore ourselves away from looking at the adorable animals, we were treated to spectacular mountain views as we drove west out of the mountains.
