Weekly Photo Challenge – Abandoned

Underneath a starry New Mexico sky, this abandoned motel is illuminated only by nearby street lights.

This week, we are challenged to share a photo that “shows us abandoned.” See the original challenge post here.

I submit for your evaluation two examples of abandoned property taken yesterday and today in and near Carlsbad, New Mexico.

This weekend, my wife, Lynn, and I are visiting Carlsbad Caverns, NM. We spent several hours over 750 feet underground, and soon I will share a gallery of photos of the caverns with my blog readers.

The Pecos River flows through Carlsbad, New Mexico, however a 3-year drought has caused the abandonment of many water-based activities along the river.

The severe drought conditions in New Mexico created a major impact upon water-based recreational activities. Click here for more details on the effects of the drought on the Pecos River.
