: ,Kingston and Mogollon. If I recall correctly,

: the Black Range Museum is located in Hillsboro.

: A great place to camp is a CCC campground located

: near "the Catwalk" which was also the site of

: another ghosttown (I don't remember the name of

: it) but William Bonney's (Billy the Kid's) father

: once had a blacksmith shop there. Anyway, the CCC

: campground is located near Glenwood. I don't know

: if there is any charge to camp there now, but at

: the time that I was there about ten years ago,

: it was free. Other ghosttowns and sites in the

: area to visit are: Pinos Altos, the Gila Cliff

: Dwellings National Monument and the Ghosttown of

: Shakespeare which is South of Lordsburg. I hope

: that this is of help to you in planning your trip.
