Sleeping with Deer

An hour later we’re in another cozy mountain town called Ruidoso. We drove through the quaint downtown and checked out the local casino (which looks better on paper).
Our cabin for the night is just outside of town in the Lincoln National Forrest. The residents of the town can thank us for saving their town from burning to the ground, because once we arrived in our cabin, we discovered the gas stove top was on and had been for days. The entire cabin was scorching hot to touch and the owners weren’t expecting another visitor for 2 more days. Anyway, once the place cooled and the smell of gas subsided we had a very relaxing evening in the forest. We were surrounded by deer and had our first home cooked meal in probably a week. And, get this, even out here in the remote wilderness, in a log cabin, in the middle of a forest, on top of a mountain, 100 miles from the nearest decent sized town, we get free wifi!
