This one is a bit far afield, so I’ve included a map.
I don’t know what my attraction is with abandoned properties, but these hunts seem to have quite a few of them. The Vista Mini Mart is exactly that, Mini!
The gas station is a remote business and they have a interesting selection of Route 66 items for sale. Tiny is an understatement here, but they have a nice selection of drinks and snacks. I stop there whenever I pass by.
If you’ve come this far and haven’t been to Conchas Lake, make the turn off of NM 104 & explore this lake and surrounding area. Make the turn even if you’ve been there, the temperature drops as you get closer to the lake.
There are several pullouts, so you can pick and choose, but this one pictured here is the largest and safest one for bikers. Great scenery on this section of 104!
No one will get dinged for missing this shot, but it’s a cool conglomeration of parts and worth a look. If you park on the other side of the road, it’s safe. Just send me a picture of the car if you’d like. Submit your pictures to: firstname.lastname@example.org
