Plateau Hame De Colquhoun Plateau Home of Colquhoun

I have been getting a lot of memories from Facebook, and Google of our move here a little over two years ago. Moving here on the land was the first thing Brent and I have done for ourselves since we have been together. We have helped others build their land to do events for many years.

But we wanted to do something for ourselves, we wanted to have our own campground and Event center.

Moving here to Plateau Hame De Colquhoun has been a learning curve. The land was vacant, had trash left by individuals dumping, cow patties from the free range cattle, cactus, snake weeds, yucca and more.

Before we could open we cleaned up and hauled off the trash, mowed, built a road for better access, build a stage, toilet.

In April of 2022 we opened for our first event an open mic. We were very fearful, we had worked many events for others but this was our first time for ourselves. We had a lot of what ifs. What if nobody shows, what if solar and generators don’t work the way we planned, what if people don’t like it, what if the road out deters people.. So many what ifs we had thought about quitting. But us being who we are (stubborn) we kept going. People did come, they said they enjoyed themselves. This made all the work so far worth it!

For all wondering as we get asked a lot.. Plateau Hame De Colquhoun is Scottish for Plateau Home of Colquhoun (Ka-hoon). Colquhoun is a Scottish clan which is Brent Colquhoun ancestry.

I wanted to add the Colquhoun March to the video but I wasn’t able to find one I could us.. So here is a link to the Colquhoun March..

Driving the musical road

Yesterday we took Anne’s puppy our grandpup in to get spayed. Since Anne got her at a humane society in Albuquerque you’d think the pup would go to a vet in Albuquerque.. Nope we had to go to Edgewood, which was a 2 hour drive for us.

Since it was too far for us to drive twice we stayed around town, with all the dogs (15 hours too long to leave locked in at home).

We did get to visit the local zoo Wildlife West Nature Park a very nice park well worth the visit!! Room and shade in the parking lot for the dogs, they got to walk and play a little!

We also got to drive down Route 66 over the musical road.. The signs are gone showing you where the spot is, but still can hear the music.

Now the pup is back home, relaxing and healing. We are getting ready for our trip to CA to go to Aftershock Festival this coming week. Stay tuned for pictures and videos!
