High Rolls, New Mexico

25 miles above the sprawling landscape of Alamogordo, NM, sits High Rolls nestled in the mountains. A small, quiet village known for it's cherry and apple orchards and gorgeous mountain living. I can trace my ancestry (father's side) back to a tiny fruit stand that still stands on the side of the highway to this day. As my children ran around in the dead leaves next to the fruit stand, I realized they were the 4th generation to play in that spot.

The family fruit stand.



Another old fruit stand.










One of the oldest buildings in High Rolls. Most likely an old bar or general store.



I have an interesting story about this next building. From the front, it seems perfectly quiet and quaint, all while still mysterious. I think it was once an old store. As I walked around back, I got the most uneasy feeling I've ever had next to a building. (And I've been around some creepy places in my life, even as a little girl.) Nothing has bothered me as much as being next to this building. I felt uneasy and didn't want to get closer to the back portion than I had to. Almost like someone or something was watching me. SO creepy!

Front


Back- it still kinda creeps me out.

  6. Creepy building is creepy O.O

    Lovely photos though! I used to love outdoor/nature photography, but ever since my beloved little camera broke a year or two ago I don't really take pictures like that anymore. I wish I could get back into it!
