San Marcos (New Mexico)

San Marcos Pueblo was one of the largest Pueblos in the Southwest in the 15th and 16th centuries, located in the Galisteo Basin a bit east of Santa Fe. Today it is an archeological dig (Pop. 0), but along the “Turquoise Trail”, Hwy 14, is the San Marcos Café and Feed Store, a roadside distraction worthy of a small town sketch. The café has wild Turkeys and Peacocks wandering about the grounds, and very sketch-worthy surroundings. This kiva fireplace is inside in one of the dining rooms.

Whose Castle? No Princess in Sight. . .

Clovis, NM is a town I pass through every time I go to the Hill Country in Texas. It’s population is too high to qualify it as a small town, and it really has very little personality anyway, but this “roadside distraction” sits on Hwy 60 as you pass by the town. It has been empty for as long as I remember and I can’t find much info about it.
