Sample text

Despite what Santa Fe shop owners might have you believe, no turquoise coyotes bay at pink moons on blue mesas; no shellacked rattlers slither through seas of sage and saltbush; no metallic hunchbacked flute players serenade tourists. This is New Mexico, where the antelope really do play on the plains against sierra vistas, where cows apathetically stroll out in front of traffic, and where one, rather unpleasantly, sweats mud. The true enchantment of New Mexico's country towns is the historical interplay between Pueblo, Navajo, Apache, Mexican, and European influences, resulting in a unique architectural, artistic, and culinary blend.

There will be various switchbacks in dates, people, and history as we move from town to town. New Mexico has always maintained its own balance. Something about the land allows for temporary prosperity or legend but rarely tolerates arrogance for too long. It is from the earth that reputations and empires are built, and it is to the earth they return. Any man or woman who has dared crack the whip of industry has also felt the sting of its business end. Small towns wax and wane in a paradox of their own making.

After the fire, Foster's built an eight-room addition over an apartment to accommodate the customers left homeless by the burning of the two other hotels. Today, the original fourteen rooms of Foster's are condemned, but patrons may still rent one of the later eight rooms. Alice herself restored every room and installed bathrooms and showers. For three bucks, train passengers can take a shower at Foster's if they want to freshen up, but I must warn you, it takes many minutes for water to reach the upstairs roomslonger if you prefer it hot.
