I second the welcome, and want to add my thanks for the thought you've been putting into various New Mexico articles. I think our state is one of the best-represented in all of Wikitravel, and you're helping make it even better. One thing: I would recommend NOT doing a separate Elephant Butte article, but rather putting Elephant Butte content into the existing article on Truth or Consequences, which can use some work. It's funny -- the town (such as it is) of Elephant Butte is really more a "suburb" of T or C than Corrales, Bernalillo, etc., are of Albuquerque, even though T or C is such a dinky place. So I'd bundle that content with T or C, particularly since we don't normally do separate articles on the bodies of water themselves; see Wikitravel:Bodies of water for an explanation. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 11:31, 29 June 2007 (EDT)
