Editor's Blog - Labor Day Weekend

Share It!Harleys, Me and Bobbie McGee, more rain and lots to eat. Greetings and a happy Labor Day weekend! I hope it did not rain as much in the rest of the state as it did in Silver City last night; we have so many events and things going on. The energy is high as the town is filled with people and activities. “Me and Bobbie McGee” drifts across the way from The Chicano Car and Music Festival at Gough Park as one of the bands fills the air with [Read More]

Editor's Blog - Sundresses & Flannel Shirts

Share It! September 2, 2015 Sundresses & flannel shirts, Allman Brothers, Acoma, petroglyphs and the Gila Cliff Dwellings. As of this writing (which is mid-afternoon) I am wearing a sundress with a flannel shirt. That should give you some idea of the fickleness of New Mexico weather! Layer, layer, layer. Hot, cool, on, off. Not always fashionable, but functional at least. Continuing work today on the new sacred sites guide. I have just completed the section on the Gila Cliff Dwellings. Such a beautiful, isolated and sacred area. I am [Read More]

Editor's Blog - Welcome September

Share It!September 1, 2015   Fall mornings and evenings; New Sacred Sites Guide and the burning of Zozobra   Welcome back September, and just as if right on schedule the mornings and evenings out here are getting a bit cooler and it seems I have to get a flannel shirt or a wrap to sit out.  I know that technically there are twenty-two more days until fall, but in my book fall begins with September and the end of the summer months as we know them. This week begins work [Read More]

Editor's Blog: Weekend Update

Share It!Stuffed Green Chiles, Bats and Wildcats, Full Moon and Tea-Dyed Shirts Yesterday’s morning walk was crisp and awakening. The park where we take our dogs was teaming with nature; butterflies galore (and so late in the season) flitting from flower to flower while hummingbirds danced at their feeders. The cicadas lulling song made for a hypnotic stroll. Later, sitting in the sun with the whiff of rosemary on the air, I was reminded of the glorious beauty of the New Mexico skies above me. For dinner I made green [Read More]

Editor's Blog - Travel Living in Red River

Share It!  In my life I have lived all over New Mexico: Red River/Questa, Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Portales and Silver City. Today I thought I would share my stories of Red River and the area. My travels to New Mexico began early, at the age of ten. We had relatives that owned lodges and cabins in Red River so we were able to visit frequently, enjoying summer vacations fishing, horseback riding, mountain hiking or exploring old gold mines. Winter holidays offered snow-mobile riding, activities at the ski area, hunting for [Read More]

Editor's Blog - Under the New Mexico Skies

Share It!It is late summer here in New Mexico and the end of August ushers in the nip of pre-fall nights with temperatures dropping a little lower each week. We have been having monsoon (or rainy season) since late June and though it normally tapers off around the first of September, I am told that due to el Nino this year it may carry on into October. The days are crisp though with the last of the wildflowers blooming and herbs ready for the harvest. Chiles are roasting all over [Read More]
