PROPERTY INFORMATION
 

1.448 acres of treed land for sale in Candy Kitchen, New Mexico in the Zuni Mountains about 2 hours W of Albuquerque by Gallup and Grants. It’s about an hour from Arizona in the Four Corners area in Cibola County. Candy Kitchen is a historical place in the middle of nowhere, absolutely beautiful, and an interesting culture for such a small community!

All the photos were taken in July 2011 & 2012 about 1/4 of a mile west and 1/4 mile north. I usually take Tennis Shoe Cutoff off of Hwy 33, aka Candy Kitchen Road, west to Well Road. From there you can then either take Leaning Tree Road or Delph Way N to the property. I’m not sure which road is in better shape but the property sits on Leaning Tree Road. You cans see this in the maps. So there is access to the property on bladed dirt roads similar to those in the photos.

I also see on Google Earth that Badger Lane runs along the west side of the property thru the trees. You can see there is an easement on the parcel map but it doesn’t look a typical road easement so you’ll need to research that one further...not sure.

The property slopes down to the west off Leaning Tree Road to Badger Lane. There is a hill to the east across the street and this is the lower part of that hill as it falls down to the valley floor. It is heavily covered in trees giving you lots of privacy in the forest! Across the street to the east is a neighbor. We tried to capture this in the aerial photos to give you an idea how it lays. The elevation drop from about 7320’ on its east to 7310’ across the 1.448 acres.

There is power about 1/4 of a mile SW as the crow flies at the neighbors around Well Road and Delph Way. I’ve also seen green phone boxes along the roads here and you would need to contact the local utility companies for estimates to connect.

Owners can drill a well for water. A community well is available to property owners for hauling in Candy Kitchen although I hear there is a waiting list usually. Last I researched the cost was $15/month and $25 to join. The Ramah Navajo Chapter also has a community well with no fee to join. You would need to buy a water card and pay for the water. The well is just a few miles from Candy Kitchen Ranch on the way to Pine Hill. The water is treated with ultraviolet light to purify without the taste of chemicals. The well is very fast. Takes no time at all to fill up a 500 gallon tank and it is not far from the property.

I sure love to go play in these mountains myself. I stopped by the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary for my first time in July 2012 and spent a beautiful afternoon on the wolf tour. I’ve stopped in a few times now. It’s $125 to adopt a wolf. To read about my visit to the wolves and their photos as well as information about Candy Kitchen click on the Newsletters section of our website and read the July 2012 issue. I also included several photos in the additional photos section

I’ve spent a few afternoons scrambling around Candy Kitchen, 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 try and make it back to the Candy Kitchen Trading Post for one of their delicious sub sandwiches before they close which is right across the street from the wolf sanctuary!

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 like the Candy Kitchen Trading Post which is across the street from the wolf sanctuary and in Pine Hill.

Yep this is definitely one of the spots I go play myself as I am only 3 hours away! I got stuck in a snowdrift out exploring Candy Kitchen by myself one winter afternoon which wasn’t the smartest thing to do. But they say you’re not really stuck until you have to phone a friend! Good thing I know how to use my 4WD! Life is good! 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. 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 in an RV with the family, oh I love to explore this area!

Pine Meadow Ranches 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 area today is designated a National Park. It is easy to see why this was a welcome landmark for weary travelers. We spent a weekend camping here in 2011. We sure had a fun time in an ATV and the sunsets over Pine Meadows were stunning!

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!

A video of Char and Buddy exploring the east edge of Pine Meadow Ranches, the historical El Morro National Monument sandstone that rises 200 feet off the valley floor.



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!
