Why are we so slow with the adventures lately? We are developing a new website. When the dust settles, the new NMBR site will provide a better platform to display our backcountry ramblings and photography. We will also be offering new services to fellow adventurists.
In search of primitive roads linking Corralitos with the Mesilla Valley, we stumbled upon a hidden gem. An old two track led us to an undisturbed valley of six foot tall grass. Wandering through the massive tufts, I felt as though I was in the savannah. While our original ambitions faded with the sun, we were pleased with such a find.
Carrizozo will be featured as the backdrop for the upcoming film “The Book of Eli” starring Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman. The “post-apocalyptic” western follows a lone man (Washington) trekking through the desolate west after a catastrophic event has left America in shambles. The hero’s journey is in protecting a sacred book that bares the secret to the humankind's salvation.
The majority of the film was shot in Carrizozo; Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Alamogordo will also be featured in the New Mexico Production.
"The Book of Eli" is will hit movie screens later this month.
