Local Life

Tierra Amarilla, New Mexico

On our favorite two-day adventure, you can meet the local people and experience the traditional culture of the historic Chama Valley area in a way few visitors ever can. You can visit the village of Los Ojos where the art of weaving has been revived by descendants of the Spanish immigrants who first settled the Valley in the 16th century.

The Manzanares Sheep Ranch, owned and operated by one family for generations, is the Ranch that provides the wool for the Valley’s traditional weaving.
