EVERYONE DREAMS OF FINDING THAT 102 QUIET LITTLE TOWN NESTLED IN THE MOUNtains with a creek running through, the creature comforts a traveler needs, yet retaining a 1950s ambiance. Those who think it’s only a dream have never stopped over at Glenwood. About 60 miles northwest of Silver City, Glenwood is surrounded by the Gila National Forest. That means plenty of public lands for the adventurous, like the San Francisco Canyon (bass, catfish, hiking and birding) or The Catwalk and its Whitewater Creek (spectacular vistas and the creek is filled with trout). Stop in at the Forest Service Ranger Station for maps and information. A motel and several B & B style inns will put you up comfortably, the general store will keep you supplied, and there is a café/bar that’s plenty “Western”. And on up the road about 8 miles is Alma, last stop on Butch Cassidy’s Outlaw Trail. The iconic bandit worked at the nearby WS Ranch (private) in the 1890s.There is a combo general store/café and you’ll want to explore Mineral Creek, usually dry in town but a forest road takes you upstream to another marvelous canyon and more trout.

Fabulous getaway nestled in the tall pines of Pinos Altos. • • • • • • • • •
