We were in Cloudcroft October 31, 2017. We had lunch at The Lodge. About 2:00 p.m. we went down to Ruidoso via the Mescalera reservation to U. s. Hwy 70. We were in Ruidoso about a week. We stayed in the private residence of friends. The highlight of our visit was a short hike around Alto Lake, north of town.
