Mesa Area 11 miles to town of Taos and 21 miles to Taos Ski Valley
High Desert is a beautiful and spacious 3 Bedroom 2 Bath home set on 5 acres in the high sagebrush mesa just 15 minutes from the town of Taos. Here you will enjoy expansive 360 degree vistas and a variety of native wildlife and birds. From the front garden courtyard, relax in the Adirondack chairs and watch as the sun sets over ancient volcanoes to the west. Or from the covered portal in the back, grill a delicious meal and take in the evening alpenglow on the high peaks of the Sangre de Cristo mountains. Listen to the howls of coyotes across the mesa at night and marvel at unbelievable views of the Milky Way in the dark skies away from the lights of town. The Rio Grande del Norte National Monument is an easy 1.5 mile walk to the west. In the Monument, hike down the old stagecoach route to Manby Hot Springs and enjoy a soak in the Rio Grande. Be sure to look for desert bighorn sheep and petroglyphs along the way!
