Animas, New Mexico

Animas is a small ranching and agricultural town east of Rustys on NM 9 and was once a hideout for the infamous Clanton gang, which included Ike & Billy Clanton, Curly Bill and Old Man Clanton.

Smugglers also travelled the area and Old Man Clanton was ambushed in Mexico in retaliation for a massacre in Skeleton Canyon down on the border.

We had a great lunch in the Panther Tracks Café before following the old rail road tracks back to Rustys.

Have fun, we are!
