Pilar, New Mexico

Pilar, NM

Only the sound of the water

Just look at all that water! This is the Rio Grande as seen from “downtown” Pilar—you’re looking downstream—and what a sight it is.

There are homes on both sides of the river. We often imagine what it would be like to live here if we could: peaceful, certainly, and rather isolated. Taos is twenty minutes north (left). The closest grocery store would be in Dixon, ten minutes away in the opposite direction. Cell phone service could be iffy. I know that just down the road from here, I can’t get a signal from Verizon.

It’s just so different by the water. Startling, really. And the birdwatching would be spectacular. Most migrating species stop here, obviously, and the weather is warmer here than up in Taos, so you’d see all kinds of things.
