Gallinas Mountains Working Ranch

Gallinas Mountains Working Ranch
New Mexico USA

Join us for a few days of living and working alongside a working ranch crew in New Mexico!

The ranch is surrounded by a wild, isolated landscape steeped in Native American heritage. It remains one of the increasingly rare places that is untouched by humans and modern life. The ranch’s landscape is characterized by the high desert, a stark and beautiful terrain of big, rough forested hills and hidden draws and meadows. It is home to a rich population of elk, gemsbok (oryx), antelope and mule deer.
Because of its isolation, the night sky is untainted and bright with crystal clear starscape.

During your stay, you will learn about ranch life and ride through beautiful landscapes.
