LISTING: Cibola County NM - Tierra Verde Ranchettes Unit 3 Lot 69 10 Acres Adj BLM Land!
<B>In 2013 Buddy and I trekked to the top of El Morro National Monument which overlooks the valley this property sits in below about 10 miles SE! It definitely was a good hike up to the top which rises 200 feet above the valley floor. The 875 room ruins at the top were once home to up to 1500 people in the late 1200s! So much to see - so little time!

PROPERTY INFORMATION
 


Land flies through this office and we provide our "New Inventory" listings with basic information including the maps while we work on additional information.



10.56 acres treed land for sale in Ramah, New Mexico about 2 hours W of Albuquerque and 30 miles SW of Grants in Tierra Verde Ranchettes. Rural off grid property in Cibola County, NM adjoins several square miles of BLM land by the El Malpais National Conservation Area.

We have never explored this subdivision even though I've been all over the El Morro Valley! I studied the parcel map and google earth quite a bit to figure out how to get to the property as well as where it sits within the unit itself. The upper part of the property sits up on a gentle hill with more trees sprinkled about. The lower part of the property is down on the flat valley floor. Other than a few cow ponds sprinkled about I don't see any improvements out in this area so plenty of privacy for now other than the grazing animals.

The parcel map shows this property sits in the very NE corner of unit 3. There is a bladed dirt road running N to S thru the east side of the property as seen in the aerial photos. That appears to be the bladed section line but it doesn't quite line up when we overlaid the parcel map over google earth. I've seen this happen before so its not too uncommon that a section road got bladed into the wrong spot. I went in deep on google earth and also see what looks like a fence line running along that road. You're going to need to do a few things to figure it out for sure - try and find the federal survey markers and corner markers to your property. If you can't you will need to have a surveyor come out and survey it for you so you know for sure where the corners are at.

The subdivision unit map indicates the main road and power about 1 mile due south. It looks like that road bends to the N about 1.2 miles SW as the crow flies and then heads north and finally NE thru this property. I see a few other ways to access this area on google earth and you will need to drive the roads to know for sure the easiest and quickest access.

That map also shows how it sits in the very NE corner of the unit. This unit covers 3/4 of the section it is located in. A section = 1 square mile = 640 acres. Adjoining it to the north is 1/4 mile strip of land that says Unplatted Laguna Mason. Adjoining it to the east starts several thousand acres of BLM land which are noted in the BLM map in yellow. Most of it is part of the El Malpais National Conservation Area. It's home of the Chain of Craters Back Country Byway which is a drive thru the west side of El Malpais thru the volcanic cinder cones and sandstone bluffs.

I hiked along the top edge of the mesa where El Morro National Monument sits one afternoon while exploring Pine Meadow Ranches. This ranch sits up on the back side of that mesa and I made a video of my hike along the edge. So somewhere down below in that valley is this property about 5.5 miles SE!

I sure love to go play in these mountains myself. I’ve spent time exploring the area and camping, enjoying afternoons sitting on the warm rock outcroppings with my sister, staring for miles across the Zuni Mountains, watching Buddy sniff out every lizard he can find, marveling at the gorgeous rocks and mesas that form the narrow valleys, and all the little ponds of water from monsoons. I stopped by the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary and spent a few beautiful afternoons on the wolf tour.

On MLK Day in January 2013 Buddy and I finally had the opportunity to visit El Morro National Monument inspired by the Free Entrance Day at the National Parks. It was preserved by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1906. Rising 200 feet above the valley floor this sandstone has been known for thousands of years for the pool of water by the great rock offering a resting stop. The bottom of the rock is filled with petroglyphs and carvings from the early Puebloans and later was marked by explorers, soldiers and emigrants. The 875 room ruins at the top of El Morro were once home to up to 1500 people in the late 1200s.

Buddy and I trekked around the bottom checking out the pool of water and inscriptions. I especially liked the carving by a young woman, A F Baley (America Francis Baley,) who was one of the few females to sign it. Her and her sister were with a party crossing to California and stopped here for rest. 500 miles west they were involved in a skirmish with Indians and several died on each side. The sisters eventually did find their way to California and I am left thinking what brave women they were and wow what it must have been like to have been alive back then!

We then got brave enough, although not near as brave as America and her sister, and took the two mile trail up to the top of the mesa to see the ancient pueblo ruins. There were some stairs along the way and it was a good work out but ahead of me was a woman at least 20 years older and if she could do it so could I! She snapped a photo of me at the ruins and you can see for miles over the valley from up there - just stunning!

I often stay at the cabins at El Morro RV Park & Cabins and grab a fabulous cup of coffee and one of their decadent baked goodies as I head out. It sure is beautiful waking up there after the snow has fallen – stunning to watch the giant sandstone monument wake up as the sun lights her up! There is a cute little country store across the street and along its front yard wall it says "All I have is my planting stick and my corn. If you can live as I do you are welcome to live with me." It comes from the Hopi, a Native America Nation who primarily live on the 1.5 million acre Hopi Reservation in northeaster Arizona. Hopis call themselves Hopitu - 'The Peaceful People'. Nice : )

The area is made up of old ranchers, artists, people living off grid in alternative style homes, and is a diverse group of people. The nearest big grocery store is an hour away but there are several smaller community stores in the area. Char the Explorer : )

ADDITIONAL PHOTOS

Cibola County - Pine Meadow Ranches, Candy Kitchen and Area Photos

Cibola County is located in the southernmost tip of the Rocky Mountains in the Zuni Mountain Range and home of the Cibola National Forest and Bluewater Lake State Park. It’s very rich in history and for the past 220 million years has been host to a variety of travelers including the dinosaurs and prehistoric culture called the Ancient Ones.

I've spent quite a bit of time exploring this area over the years. I've marveled at the rock windows in the Prehistoric Cliff Dwellings, saw petroglyph writings for my first time, explored archaeological sites, camped, toured the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary a few times, hiked to the top of El Morro National Monument, sat on a warm rock outcroppings with my sister staring for miles across the Zuni Mountains, and watched Buddy sniff out lizards!



Candy Kitchen is a small isolated community and home to a diverse group of people. It prides itself on sustainable ways of living. It originated with a rancher who made moonshine liquor during the prohibition era. As a front for purchasing large amounts of sugar to produce his liquor, he manufactured pinon nut candy. People would come to his ranch to purchase candy over the counter and illegal liquor under the counter.

It is now home of the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing permanent, safe sanctuary for abused and abandoned captive-bred wolves and wolf-dogs.



Across the street from the wolf sanctuary is the Candy Kitchen Trading Post, a great spot to stop for a cold drink and great sub sandwich. They offer food items, propane, wood, and hardware supplies.

Pine Meadow Ranches is another small community that sits on the back side of the El Morro National Monument. Also known as the "Inscription Rock", it rises 200 feet above the plains this was once the site of two Anasazi Pueblos in 1275 A. D. The largest pueblo was made up of over 900 rooms. Hundreds of Indian petroglyphs are found at the base as well chiseled names of numerous explorers, soldiers, settlers, and immigrants. This sandstone has been known for thousands of years for the pool of water by the great rock offering a resting stop. This area today is designated a National Park.

On MLK Day in January 2013 Buddy and I finally had the opportunity to visit El Morro National Monument. We trekked around the bottom checking out the pool of water and inscriptions. I especially liked the carving by a young woman, A F Baley (America Francis Baley,) who was one of the few females to sign it.

She snapped a photo of me at the ruins and you can see for miles over the valley from up there - just stunning! And then I turned around and realized that the tree lines in the distance and the beautiful rocks with their red and white colors washed thru them were the same rocks I had been photographing for over 10 years now while out exploring Pine Meadow Ranches!



In February 2013 I explored the east edge of Pine Meadow Ranches where the edge of the sandstone mesa is! Wow was it a long way down and I was nervous when my friend climbed out onto one of the rocks hanging 200 feet over the rocks below!

I stopped by Bluewater Lake State Park for my first time in September 2016. It's about 25 miles W of Grants and 1.25 hours from the ranch. I was surprised to see herons and pelicans and had to do some fact checking to make sure they indeed lived here!
