If the heart of Red River is its people, the soul of Red River is its charm and beauty.
Nestled in the Sangre di Cristo mountains, this quaint mining town boasts soaring peaks, a scenic landscape that changes with each season, high altitudes and crisp mountain air. Established in the late 1800s, its old west roots are still apparent when you stroll down Main Street or catch Michael Martin Murphy performing at the Lazy H Chuckwagon Dinner and Show.
There’s no better place to escape the hustle and bustle of big city life. Whether its your first visit to Red River or your fiftieth, Red River’s quiet, friendly atmosphere feels like home.
On page 21 of It’s In His Heart, Ella’s just arrived in Red River. She only plans to stay for the summer, but it already feels like home. Have you vacationed in Red River yet? If so, tell me about it. If not, do you have a favorite vacation spot that feels like home away from home?
