Found It in Red River

  The scavenger hunt is in the grand tradition of treasure hunting in Northern New Mexico. From the time of the Spanish conquistadors, through the Anglo gold lust of the 1800s and the oil wells and uranium mining in the 1950s, the search for treasure is part of the legacy of the Land of Enchantment. You may have heard of Forrest Fenn, the Santa Fe art dealer who claimed in 2010 that he had hidden a carved wooden chest laden with gold, diamonds and rubies somewhere between Santa Fe and the Canadian border. No one has found it yet, or if so, they’re not telling! A great way to...

River Restoration Completed

  The New Mexico River Stewardship Program provides funding to restoration projects that enhance the health of rivers by addressing the root causes of poor water quality and stream habitat. Through such projects, the River Stewardship Program aims to restore (or maintain) hydrology of streams and rivers to reduce flooding downstream, while simultaneously enhancing economic benefits of healthy river systems for local communities.

Phase One began in 2006. “Young’s Ranch Reach” runs through the east edge of town and was a priority due to heavy damage from flooding in the spring of 2005. Phase Two, “Red River Westside Fishing Park,” also...

We can’t wait to welcome you, too!” The name of the Shoppe comes from the Hideaway Cabin at Tall...

What Do You Like Most?

  The Town of Red River recently posed a question to its Facebook Friends: “WHAT DO YOU LIKE THE MOST ABOUT RED RIVER? We’d like to know so we can post what’s most important to you when you can’t be here!” Responses came quickly, as is the way of Social Media. Some responded with photos that communicated their feelings: wildlife, mountain vistas, flowers, fall colors, time with grandkids, and snow-covered mountains.  One response said it in three words: All of it! It’s not unusual to meet and talk with someone who wishes they could live in Red River. Many of these good folks are quick to say that they...
