Nothing which has entered into our experience is ever lost --William E. Channing

Cuervo, New Mexico

Cuervo, New Mexico

explored & photographed by: Casper

Once again, our friend Casper shares a tale (and some killer pics) from another forgotten and lost location. Below, she tells us more about her awesome accidental discovery...

"I don't know anything about Cuervo, New Mexico other than I happened upon it by accident while on a road trip from California to Iowa. The car was about out of gas and we saw the Cuervo sign so decided to stop, thinking they had a gas station. Little did we know what we had found....

Getting off at the Exit is the "abandoned" side of town and on the other side of Interstate 40 is the "living" side of town. Yet the living side isn't doing too well either. Their gas station didn't have a credit card machine or an ATM. Hell it wasn't even open, and their post office was just a house trailer with goats in the back yard! But we were so incredibly excited when we ventured back to the "abandoned" side. There was a church, an old salon, and a couple houses that were falling apart. It was incredible....

The entire time I was there I kept getting that feeling of being watched, and it was enough to give my arms goose bumps and make the hair on the back of my neck raise up! I am very interested in finding out the history of Cuervo, though I can't really find anything about it. I heard that it was a railway town that died down sometime in the 70's, but I can't be too sure. I'll keep looking though.

I DEFINITELY recommend stopping in Cuervo, New Mexico. It's located in on the Eastern side of the State right on Interstate 40. I think it's about a 1/2 hour drive from the Texas border. --Casper"

And THANKS from us to the Casper once again for sharing another killer discovery from the land of the 'lost'!!
