Hwy 285 travels from Denver to Santa Fe then onto Roswell NM. Bountiful Co. sits at the very bottom center of the state, we can see NM from the kitchen window. We are about 50 miles north of Taos. In the worlds largest Alpine valley. The San Luis valley has many small towns there are 5 within 10 miles from us. Bountiful no longer shows up on the map, but the highway dept. has a sign on both sides of our property which is 800 feet of commercial zoned Hwy. We are 5 or 10 miles from where Zebulan Pike built his stockade prior to his capture and deportation to Chihuahua Mexico. Back in the day there was an artesian well horse and mule teams watered on the trail, till cars were invented the stop became a post office. Across the high way Adolf Coors had 4 giant grain towers to store barley seed for his famous beer. Sometimes I wish they would have painted them as beer cans. There is a rail spur to drop of train cars, train goes by 3 times a week loaded with pearlight and Colorado lava rock. Ten miles south Antonito has a real narrow gauge rail road that takes passengers over the pass to Chama NM. We are selling Bountiful for under $100,000. Since Mrs P wants to move more than Mr P, you can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or pic request. OR LOOK UP ALBUMS ON OUR PROFILE
