Take the time to meet Sue!
Sep 2018
You won't be sorry if you stop and meet Sue, you won't meet a more genuine and loving person. The local artwork she displays should not be missed and the prices for handmade items is more than affordable. You ill find a lil bit of everything from essential oils to hand made pottery and one of a kind jewelry to some of the best conversation you will get. It is not a trip to High Rolls without visiting our dear friend Sue.

Unique and artistic but...
Nov 2018 • Solo
This is a nice place to stop half-way up the mountain. Inside there's beautiful local art, pottery and vintage items unique to the area. There are a lot of books but most of them are outdated, not antique, just outdated type of reading material. It could be much improved, not a lot of thought to it. They have several rooms to meander through which is nice with eclectic artwork and sculptures. There's a room dedicated to yarn and yarn tools. An employee, maybe the owner, asked if I needed anything. (They were having some kind art class which seemed interesting.) I asked her if they had Tarot or oracle cards. She looked at me like I had two heads and in a snotty tone said "We don't have that stuff here, this is all local art". I wanted to punch her in the throat but you know, love and light, so I told her that oracle cards are often interpreted by artists and drawn by hand used for spiritual clarity. She walked away. Later on, she followed me around for a little while being creepy but I just ignored her. Not a progressive area for sure. I bought a small selenite jewelry box, handmade, really beautiful. I paid for it and the guy at the register wrapped it in a newspaper, grocery store ad newspaper. I would suggest wrapping paper, even plain brown. Wrapping beautiful items in newspaper is disrespectful to the artists and the art.

Stop and wander through this maze of art, crafts, books, jewelry, local produce and clothing. Whatever you are looking for, it's there. Great prices, local artists. There are over 300 artists/ vendors there.

Wonderful local artists
Jul 2018
The Tunnel Stop is located in High Rolls, NM, on Highway 82, about a mile or two above the tunnel. This is a great place to stop to view local jewelry, pottery, wall art and other artistic offerings. Try the cherry cider, buy some local honey, check out the wonderful artwork and buy from a local artist! The proprietress is wonderful and will also share stories about the artists as well as the exquisite artwork. Treat yourself to the Tunnel Stop!

A Delightful Stop Halfway up the Mountain
Aug 2017 • Couples
The Tunnel Stop is a fun place to shop where you can find anything from Cherry or Raspberry cider, to pecans, to new & used books, to unique pottery, to fine artwork, ad infinitum. Sue, the owner, is always very pleasant, helpful, and knowledgeable. If you're going to be in the area for awhile, she also conducts classes in several different arts and crafts. Don't miss this unique mountain treasure if you're in the Alamogordo or Cloudcroft area.

Worth the Stop

Don't miss a chance to come by and visit with Sue and Thumbelina and look at all the beautiful works of local art she showcases. If you get a chance go out and watch the hummers frolic in the sun.

Local Artists Showcased at the Tunnel Stop
Feb 2017 • Friends
If you are interested in unique gifts, cultural items and supporting local artists, a trip to the Tunnel Stop should be in your future! This quirky and fun shop offers handmade soaps, native jewelry, pottery, weavings, custom knives, New Mexico-style crosses, local honey, cherry cider and other fascinating items. The shop winds around, each room leading to another. It is fun, and the owners are friendly and love to chat about the artists featured inside. Worth stopping to explore.

Can drive by it but consider stopping
Jan 2017 • Family
If you get a break between passing cars you are able to take in the beautiful sights and sounds of the canyon. At a minimum drive through it slowly so you can take it all in.
