From: maier540The only highway tunnel in Southern New Mexico is at the 7.3 mile mark on the climb up to Cloudcroft. A parking area just west (downhill) of the tunnel affords a spectacular view of Fresnal Canyon which has some prehistorical sites, White Sands, and the Tularosa Basin.

From: gnikleThe view fron the Tunnel overlook is awesome. I used to go camping near Cloudcroft when I was a child and have never forgotten how many scenic areas are in and around Cloudcroft.
