National Forest road 110
I live and work in Canjilon NM for the Forest Service. We get daily News clips from the Forest Service, and todays first entry was this: "Dispersed Camping on the Carson National Forest road 110 Canjilon New Mexico As I drove East on Carson NF road 110 the dirt road got very bumpy and I had to drive slow. I drove slow so as not to damage my old truck. I drove... Source TravelBlog - Jul 22, 2021". Of course this peaked my interest, but when I clicked on the link, I received the "Page not Found", error code 404 message. I then proceeded to do an internet search to see if I could find a way around the error. In so doing, I found your blog page and thought I'd see if I could get the story "straight from the horses mouth." I'm hoping that it won't be removed for good. I enjoyed reading some of your other entries while I was here. Thanks!

Dispersed Camping in the Carson NF
First I want to thank the National Forest Service for their camping availability to the public. Since this error happened before, I made certain that I did include the "missing" location using Taos, NM as the required location. Once again I used the "contact us" to ask for assistance from and did not receive a reply. I do want others to enjoy the USFS. I am going to submit another replacement blog on FS 110, and a new blog on a great camping experience I had in 2020 in the Carson NF by New Mexico Hwy 518. The USFS is our tax money well spent.

Rusk State Hospital

Amazing post all around
but these pictures of the inside of Rusk are especially valuable to me. It's interesting that they made a corner stone with the East Texas State name: I found that name in an add for GE industrial stoves, where they highlight institutions that use their products--in 1960! But official TX documents pretty much drop the name by 1923. If you have any more interior shots, I'd love to see them. In any event, thanks for posting this.

Rusk State Penitentiary
Thanks for your comment. This large building was one of the three original buildings built in the 1880s. It was demolished a few months later.

My family owns the land next to the pavilion on the left where you took the photo of structure. Lot of memories and stories past down from generation to generation. Thank you Melissa Lilley

Thanks Melissa, I did not know that Barsola existed, and I was looking for other old towns in Southern Cherokee County when I found the sign.

Old Blue
Thanks for your concern. If truck can be fixed for $1000.00 USD, she will be back on the road for any driving under 200 KM from home.

Virtual tour to San Augustin
In thus blog with relevant photos you succeed in presented a charming town. I am a bit a history buff too so I enjoy in timeline presentation and I am sad that we have only few historic marker but different kind. For photo regard - good idea about window reflection of yourself.
