You Would Not Believe Who We Found in New Mexico

Did you know that Smokey Bear was a real bear? You can find Smokey Bear on a road trip to New Mexico. If you find yourself traveling from Roswell, New Mexico to the other side of the Capitan Forest in New Mexico. You must stop and see Smokey Bear's. His was recused from a forest fire in the Capitan Mountains and has a heartwarming story. It is well worth a stop if you are traveling to White Sands National Park, Lincoln, Roswell, Arizona, Texas, Ruidoso, or nearby. The Smokey Bear Gravesite is also just two hours from Carlsbad Caverns. And, one hour from White Sands National Parks. Remember "Only You Can Prevent Forest Fires."
