Nestled at the foot of the Chiricahua Mountains.

Southwest of Lordsburg at the foot of Arizona’s Chiricahua mountain range is Rodeo, New Mexico, a community that has gained popularity in recent years as an arts village, birding area and star-gazing site. Presently, Rodeo is home to three galleries: The Chiricahua Guild and Art Gallery in the old mission church, the Rock Shop and the Roger McKasson Studio Gallery, a working studio owned by the noted painter and sculptor. The Rodeo area also offers restaurants, groceries, B & B’s, RV facilities and the Chiricahua Desert Museum featuring live reptile exhibits. Declared an “outstanding natural area for birding habitat,” Guadalupe Canyon in the Southwest corner of Hidalgo County and Cave Creek in the Chiricahua Mountains host species found no where else in the United States. Hiking, camping and stable night skies for stargazing are abundant. Cave Creek is also the location of the Southwestern Research Station of The American Museum of Natural History. A monument representing Geronimo’s surrender in Skeleton Canyon is located just west of town. LOCATION

The perfect remote getaway for writers, photographers, artists, birders, hikers, astronomers and honeymooners. Moderately priced bed and breakfast. PO Box 251, Rodeo, NM 88056 575-557-7777 Visit www.CasaAdobe.net for reservation information
