Nogal Peak is the highest and most notable peak in the Southern White Mountain Wilderness in the southeastern part of New Mexico near the town of Ruidoso. Its easy access and stunning views make this a fine mountain for a day hike. Tall grass, scrub oak and other miscelaneous shrubbery give this cone shaped peak a unique look.
"It occurred to me that anyway one more Sunday was over, that Maman was buried now, that I was going back to work, and that, really, nothing had changed."
