The Billy the Kid Pageant was a roaring success. Here's Billy the Kid with just a few of his fans:
I've been coming to Lincoln since 1978 and I've never seen bigger crowds.
Took the back road from Carrizozo to Albuquerque yesterday, thru Corona, Estancia, Chillili and Tijeras. Great clouds and lonely, abandoned ranches. Very serene.
Had a bowl of green chile in Corona at El Corral Cafe ($5). After church crowd. Heard all the local gossip. That was fun, but made me glad I don't live there. Ha.
Landed at the High Chaparral at about four. Dinner with the Huttons. Off to Santa Fe today for a meeting with the director of monuments.
