It is an interesting looking town but currently it appears that it is in renovation and scheduled to open again in May of 2012. I tried to use the new web site address but it did not work. According to a comment posted on the link below it may be closed permanently which would be a sad thing.
This town is located on the western side of New Mexico at the mile post 3 off ramp. There isn't much in the area as far as population goes. I think when I finally got to visit here I was sort of disappointed by the fact it was closed and just took a couple snaps. That and I was on the way home and I didn't really have lots of time to look over a fence. Maybe had the place been open I would have spent more time looking around. The fence sort of keeps you at a distance so unless you have a really long lens it might be difficult to get photos.
Having said that I would take the opportunity to go back and check it out when I pass by again. I tend to stay over night in the area when I travel so yes I would go back again.

|These two photos I took from the west on ramp. The time of day made the lighting terrible.|
