Ruidoso, New Mexico

In 2012, lightning started the Little Bear Fire in New Mexico’s Lincoln National Forest. The fire grew out of control due to dry, windy conditions but was eventually contained after burning 44,330 acres. In 2019, I visited the Lincoln National Forest near Ruidoso and saw what is left of the burned areas.
Some other major forest fires to affect New Mexico include the Whitewater-Baldy Complex fire in 2012, the Las Conchas Fire in 2011, and the Cerro Grande Fire in 2000.
