  • 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.

  • Surprise! It is cold and snowy as I write this. Yes, it is past the middle of May and those of us who live in the mountains know we can still have a freeze. My geraniums will obviously have to wait another week before they can move out on my deck. So much for spring weather here.

    Friends and I enjoy a hop, skip and a jump, often on the spur of the moment, to visit my county seat, Mora, and have a chile fix lunch at one of the restaurants there. We often drive out past the alpaca ranch, just to enjoy the scenery.
