We decided to stay another day and look around Tucumcari. The fellow with the beard at the Tee Pee Curios told Ken about a few places he liked, he is a photographer and that is his photo on the cover of the magazine he is holding.
We are staying at the Cactus RV park they used to be the Cactus Motor motel, most of the rooms are still standing.
We went around town photographing the murals and some of the old neon signs which they are trying to save. We visited the Mesaland Dinosaur Museum yesterday and today the Historical Museum both were very good for a small town. The Dinosaur was especially surprising as it houses a lab for the community college and the community college is famous for its bronze foundry which they make the dinosaur bones into bronze dinosaurs. Ken visited with the director of the museum and the students have found 2 new dinosaurs in the area. Lots of bones and old volcanos in the area.
