Silver City, New Mexico 2012, part 2.

Below are a few more photographs of Silver City, New Mexico.

Above, the “Silver City RV Park” where I decided to spend the first night in Silver City.

Below, signs of a possible stealthy boon-docker in downtown Silver City, New Mexico.  A buddy of mine Dave had a similar van in the 1990s and made countless trips to the desert southwest in it!

Above, the view of Silver City from Boston Hill.

Above and below, signs of how Silver City got its name….. Silver Mining!  These Pit Mines are probably from the 1880s?  It’s amazing to see the rocks stacked next to the pits, probably placed there by the original mines and never touched again!

Above, the 1880s home that now is the Silver City Museum.  The home was built in 1881 and was the residence to a wealthy gentleman and his family until he lost his mining fortune in 1889 and moved to Long Beach California in 1892!

I am an adventure-loving American man, with a severe case of wander-lust and a desire to experience as much of this wonderful world as humanly possible. Every place I have visited or lived has taught me something about life and helped me grow. For me, traveling opens my eyes to how similar the human race is, yet at the same time, how unique we all are. I hope this blog will motivate you to put down the TV remote, dust off your backpack and decide to take a chance on an adventure. It can be a walk in a new neighborhood 2 miles from home or a trip to a far off distant land. I have lived in or visited over 50 countries during my life and hope to see many more. I want to share my experiences. I hope you enjoy the blog. -WAND3R3R, Somewhere on the Globe, 2014.
