It's that time of year again: time for me to get jealous as a lot of my favorite Instagram accounts start posting cute photos of fall.

Fall is here, but in El Paso that doesn't mean much. As much as I love El Paso- I'm a fall person and here in the desert that is basically non-existent. Sure, it's a bit chilly today- and I may have already busted out my San Marcos cobija- but tomorrow, it'll be hot again! It's hard to be a person who loves autumn/fall (whichever you prefer) while living in El Paso, we don't call it the Sun City for nothing where we have enough hot and sunny days!

But, nonetheless, I love fall. I love the changing of the leaves, the crisp, chilly air, the fashion- I love it all. Despite the fact that I know that I can't get that full experience here in El Paso, I know that we are lucky enough to be close to a place where we can get the full fall experience.

Technically we have two choices: Ruidoso and Cloudcroft. Both are about a two hour drive away, and you'll be able to get into the full fall vibe!

The pictures don't do it enough justice, so, for now, you will just have to trust me when I say that fall in Ruidoso is a wonderful getaway- even if it is for the weekend.

It's also the perfect background for those selfies you know you want to take.

So, if you're a fall person like me, then you already know that Ruidoso and Cloudcroft are the place to go, and if you didn't know, well now you do!
