Photo of the Week - September 24, 2012


A couple of weeks back we took a drive over to Capulin Volcano, east of Raton, New Mexico. The volcano was less than inspiring, but interesting to see none the less. The place I did enjoy was the small out of the way village of Folsom. It was obvious that the economy problems weren't doing Folsom any favors, but the people we did see on that Sunday afternoon seemed to be having a real good time anyway.

What was left of an old downtown consisted of the Folsom Museum, an old mechanic's garage and a slew of old vacant buildings. (click here to see the village's web site) The one building that caught my eye was the old Folsom Hotel.....boarded up and over grown.....just my kind of subject matter!! Anyway, this image is the fruits of that labor. Hope you enjoy.
