Cloudcroft sits at an elevation of 8,668 feet in southern New Mexico's Sacramento Mountains, over 4,300 feet above the Tularosa Basin of the Chihuahuan Desert below. The logging industry surrounding Cloudcroft boomed at the beginning of the 20th Century, as a railroad was built to carry spruce and fir timber down to sawmills in Alamogordo. Favorable newspaper reports, though, quickly made Cloudcroft a popular tourism destination as well, a place to escape the desert heat much like we're doing in this week's new episode of Grand Adventure. We survey the camping, RV and recreational opportunities surrounding Cloudcroft, and also visit nearby White Sands National Monument.

Welcome to Grand Adventure, a YouTube channel that focuses on RV-centric outdoor activities including not only of course camping, but also mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, skiing and more, always filmed in stunning 4K.
We're based in Salt Lake City, Utah, and invite you to come along as we travel all around the western U.S. My wife Patricia and I, and dog Zoe are avid boondockers, so you'll seldom find us in RV parks or even dry campgrounds. Instead, we're usually camped in some of the most remote and beautiful spots that you could ever pull a travel trailer into. And unlike most other RV channels on YouTube, we're not RV dealers or full-timers -- we're "long-timers" who tend to hit the road for weeks or months at a time, while maintaining a sticks-and-bricks home in Utah.
We'll provide beautiful travel videos, as well as some tips and insight on trip planning, and equipping and maintaining your RV to make your next adventure a grand one indeed! So, subscribe to make sure that you catch every episode, and remember...life is nothing but a Grand Adventure!
