Seasons

The abundance of various types of landscape, the clear air with a mostly blue sky and the diverse, colorful rocks give New Mexico its proverbial magic ‘Land of Enchantment’. Because of the southerly location and because it is on the downwind side of the Rocky Mountains, the climate of New Mexico is not humid and in the summer quite hot. In the winter it may get chilly, because of the altitude (the ranch sits at 4,500 feet). 

We bask in 310 days of sunshine, combined with a mild, dry climate and 4 distinct seasons. Very low humidity means that even when temperatures rise, summer is always comfortable, and our sunny winters are comparatively mild. Our average annual rainfall is about 9 inches, and the average relative humidity is only 44 percent. Please be aware that low humidity and abundant sunshine mean visitors need to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Visitors should also use sunblock with a high SPF for skin protection. UV rays are stronger at higher altitudes.

Spring / Summer
New Mexico is synonymous with great weather and the spring and summer seasons are no exception. The high desert climate with very low humidity makes temperatures comfortable, with spring-time average highs around 69 degrees F and average daily lows around 44 degrees F. Summer’s daily highs are around 89 degrees F and lows are around 64 degrees F.

Fall
Fall is a special season here in New Mexico. Mornings are cool and pleasant, warmed by the bright sunshine; the cottonwoods turn a beautiful yellow along the Rio Grande; and seasonal growers markets bear fresh fruit and roasted chile. Autumn in New Mexico is often called "Indian Summer" because of warm temperatures early in the season around 70°F/21°C. Summer still lingers in September and early October, with "sweater" weather setting in during November.
