Old Mesilla is an historic village off the I10 in south east New Mexico. I shot this on my epic drive from Florida to Arizona this week. I have overnighted in the murder capital of the world, El Paso-Cuidad Juarez so reached Old Mesilla before any of the stores were open and the streets were empty.
The town dates back to overland trading days and is smack bang in the heart of Billy the Kid country.
Well worth turning off the freeway if you’re passing through this neck of the woods. It’s about a mile off the freeway, if that.
