My Homestead

I came here to the San Luis Valley out here on the open prairie a year ago. My location can be pinpointed on a road map by these coordinates: 3 miles north of the New Mexico border in Colorado and a half a mile east of the Rio Grande. There are no power lines, no fences, no nothing. The entire valley an alpine desert at 8000ft+ is surrounded by mountains and volcanoes with awesome vistas in every direction. It's an incredible, magical place and only 17 miles from the nearest town of Antonito home of the Cumbres Toltec narrow gauge scenic railroad. It's an awesome place to visit and even more awesome to live here. Living in a small tent I built this winky dinky little cabin with logs I cut and hauled from the Carson National Forest and old timbers from the historic Labatos bridge which was just recently restored and reopened. Out here on the prairie there are 'no rules, just right'. I mill the logs and build furniture too and that's another story.

Yes, it does. I work in the molybdenum mine in Questa, New Mexico. The company is called Molycorp

Wow! Cool. I had no idea there was such a thing on Google. I thought only spy agencies had those kinds of technologies. It's a pretty small cabin. Maybe you'll see a green speck lol. You girls are awesome in many ways! Let me count them
