Serenity and solitude are concepts not often discussed, much less experienced, amid the turmoil of life in these early years of the 21st century. You’ll find them at Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch! Here, beneath the tall Ponderosa pines, in the cool higher elevations of the Black Range Mountains of southwest New Mexico, the quiet is such that you can hear the approach of an eagle from the beat of the air beneath his wings.
Large herds of elk frequent the meadows, streams and lakes nearby. 85 miles from the nearest stoplight, evidence of the intrusion of modern man is virtually absent. Yet the mountains and canyons evoke the heritage of the American cowboy, and abound with relics of Native American societies who have gone before us. After a few days at the ranch, guests lose track of the date, and find they don’t care anymore. As has often been observed, it is hard to have a bad day on the back of a good horse. By horseback you will explore the pristine, 3.3 million acre Gila National Forest with its landscape of spectacular deep canyons, crystal clear spring fed streams, high mountain overlooks, open meadows and sweet smelling Ponderosa forests. This is a special place in America, an adventure offering a unique perspective on our past and encouraging some thoughtful reflection on the future. Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch is open March through mid-November. www.geronimoranch.com 575-772-5157 Email: email@example.com
