  • I know summertime is here. A quick check of my calendar points that out. Friends and relatives from near and far in our great country wonder when they can come to our mountains to “recharge their battery.” How could one not recharge their battery here in this fun and so varied part of New Mexico, I ask? No matter where one goes, there is something new to learn and something new to experience.

    After so many years of entertaining both dude ranch guests and family members,  we know almost everyone needs a real green chile fix.
