New Mexico

Red River New Mexico is a mining town that dates back to 1895 when over 3,000 miners searched the beautiful surrounding mountains for gold. By the early 1900s most had gone elsewhere in search of gold but the town remained to play host to a country full of hot and weary travelers looking for relief. Over the years it has become a treasured destination for many and is often referred to as "The Mountain Playground of the Southern Rockies".Red River is located in the southern Rocky Mountains, part of the Sangre de Cristo Range. The village is completely surrounded by the 1,500,000 acre Carson National Forest. It sits at an altitude of 8,750' and receives 188" of snowfall annually. Summertime high temperatures remain in the mid 70's and highs in the winter are in the 40's.
