14 hours from San Antonio is a little blue house on Red River. Tucked in the Rocky Mountains of Northern New Mexico, Red River is host to a range of winter and summertime activities. Named for the tributaries that flow from Wheeler Peak to the Rio Grande, Red River is a mining town turned tourist hub. Known for skiing this is truly a photographers playground.
There is no lack of photo locations or opportunities in the Red River area. Every direction one turns is a breathtaking view and a backdrop that would turn any snapshot into a fantastic portrait. The summertime proved to be stunning most any time of day. Partly cloudy skies in the morning turned to ominous fronts as the warmer afternoon air helped build storm systems above the mountain peaks. By sundown the horizon was filled with fantastic color and amazing cloud formations that made for a picturesque end to the day.
For a vacation it was a beautiful week, with lots of activities and plenty of excitement. The little blue house along the river was a great home away from home, leaving us with the urge to sell everything and move to the quaint little town. In the end it seems like the perfect place for a yearly vacation.
