Another Beautiful Day

Mudgap, New Mexico, weather forecast

High in the Sierra Fangoso Mountains of southern New Mexico roosts an unfolding yarn, a frontier village defying its ghost town fate. Drop by on your vacation and assay our little community, unspoiled and largely undiscovered. Ride the Solomon Line’s old-time steam train from Las Cruces or drive the winding mountain road. Rub elbows with present-day artists, writers and Army defense workers. Share space with the meandering myths of yesterday. Questions?

Drop an email to our lonely webmaster.

We’ll see you soon. Meanwhile, take a look around. And visit our village blog (Sierra Fangoso Fantasia); sound off, join a discussion, or give us some feedback.

The Rio Fangoso trail may date from the explorations of Juan de Oñate y Salazar (1550-1626) who crossed the Rio Grande near present day El Paso in 1598. He perhaps ventured across the Sierra Fangosos before continuing up the Rio Grande. The trail was considered ancient when Lieutenant-Colonel Phillip St. George Cooke established the more southerly Cooke’s Trail during the Mexican War of 1846.

Lloyd Barnstaff Lloyd, Principal of Rockman Canyon Press, sponsors research into the origins of the Rio Fangoso Trail. Catch up on your reading, and enjoy one of these latest offerings.
