Welcome to Red River


Red River now appears as a cluster of cheerfully painted shops and chalets, decked out in German-peasant style with an Old West theme – you'd think it wouldn't work, but it does. The historic buildings and dilapidated mines have been joined by a ski resort, adventure outfitters, ticky-tacky shops galore and, this being New Mexico, art galleries.

Just be warned that the whole place pretty much shuts down during the off-season, from mid-March to mid-May.
