Dealing with High Desert Wind Storm’s

Warm sunny day, yet 40 mph gusts with 30 mph constant winds. Wind storms here aren’t much different then blizzards in MN. Visibility is bad, everything gets full of sand especially your eyes and mouth. You have to shut all windows, close curtains and doors to try keep the sands out, even then everything inside gets covered.
I usually wear a mask when outside, as my sinuses swell all up everytime it gets windy.

Safe Environment, Be yourself while camping

It seems so quiet here Plateau Hame De Colquhoun right now, first day in over a week we don’t have any campers.

We’ve had a couple people ask why we don’t post more pictures of people camping? We don’t share photos of people camping out of privacy and respect to anyone staying here.

As a camper you’re welcome to take photos. But we will not take any photos of anyone staying unless asked to do so…As a camper you’re welcome to take photos. But we will not of anyone staying unless asked to do so…

All are welcome, come be yourselves, enjoy yourselves within a safe environment!

Busy Week in the Desert

It’s been a busy week. We’ve had a week of campers, an event coming up April 2nd here at Plateau Hame De Colquhoun . Still don’t have everything set up the way we’d like, but that is mostly due to cost of lumber..

it’s warming up, though been windy. Which makes clearing tumble weeds a daily task, though Dreugan loves chasing them.

Another Wind Advisory

Went and ate at the RSH Steakhouse in Belen tonight, highly recommend going it ever in town!!

Back here Plateau Hame De Colquhoun we are getting ready for a small private event. We haven’t had much of a chance to start working on the new store front. But hoping soon we’ll be able to. So many projects, so little time. We have high wind advisories for tomorrow, which means we won’t get much done. But that’s okay as it’s off to the dentist tomorrow for me.

Desert life

As much as we love our independence and adventure of living where many dare to live. It can be very hard and lonely at times. Within this desolate area we have a community that watch out for each other. We have became a family. As a family we check up on each other, visit and get annoyed with each other. We know all that is going on, for if one sees something or someone unusual, we all get a call.

Another world?

Hard to believe this view is not from another planet! We see this view everyday here at Plateau Hame De Colquhoun. So far our views haven’t gotten old. Hardest part is learning all the mountains and their names etc.  This mountain is easy its Ladrone Peak! Ladrone meaning thieves, the story goes that outlaws used to hide up on Ladrone Peak as there wasn’t anyway to ambush them, they can see 100 miles in all directions. If you know any history, we’d love to hear it! Feel free to post in the comments!
