Having lived here most of my life, I know the hiking trails, fauna and flora of the area and love to share maps, stories and information. The NeighborhoodThe San Francisco River runs through our valley from the north; Whitewater and Mineral Creeks cascade from the east; the spectacular Mogollon Mountain Range outlines the sky. We are surrounded by the Gila National Forest and the first Wilderness area to be established in the United States. The stunning and diverse landscape of the surrounding area covers four of the six life zones. This is a bird watchers paradise; from bald and golden eagles to resident great blue herons and black hawks, migrating cranes and ducks to six different species of hummingbirds. Our piece of heaven has been granted the distinction of some of the "Darkest Sky" in the nation for stargazing. This area is rich in history from the pre-historic Mimbreno Culture; famous Apache Chiefs: Mangas Colorado, Victorio, and Geronimo; Mining camps, ghost towns; the "Wild Bunch" and Butch Cassidy; the first motorized "Air Ship" to fly in New Mexico and conservationist Aldo Leopold. Glenwood is known for the Catwalk Recreation Area, which is 4 miles up the canyon from "Billy's Bungalow". About the Catwalk Whitewater Canyon, site of the famous Catwalk, was a central point in the mining history of this area. The town called both Graham and Whitewater grew up around a mill built by John T. Graham in 1893. All that remains to mark the spot is part of the mill walls still clinging to the west side of the canyon near the entrance to The Catwalk. The mines above the canyon were worked from their discovery in 1889 until 1942 (Billy the Kid's stepfather, William Antrim, was a blacksmith at Graham). The Helen Mining Company was first to develop 13 claims about 4 miles upstream from the mill which could not be built closer to the mines because of the rough, narrow canyon. A 3 mile long, 4" metal pipeline provided a continuous water supply to the town and its electric generator. Although a larger 18" pipeline was built in 1897 to run a big, new generator, the present day Catwalk follows the route of the original line. Pipe used in the water line was delivered to the site on wagons drawn by teams of up to 40 horses. Ore was pulled down the mountain to an ore chute on the ridge just above the mill by smaller teams. Brace holes were drilled into the solid rock walls, sometimes 20 feet above the canyon floor, to hold the timbers and iron bars that supported the smaller water line along its meandering course. The massive rock walls of Whitewater Canyon saw few visitors until the Civilian Conservation Corps. was assigned the task of rebuilding The Catwalk as a recreation attraction for the Gila National Forest. Getting AroundGlenwood is 65 miles north of Silver City and 38 miles south of Reserve. It is equal distance (235 miles) from Tucson, El Paso and Albuquerque; (245 miles) from Phoenix. There is no public transportation. Rental cars are available in Silver City. There is a small airport (Grant County Airport) with daily flights from Phoenix, AZ and Albuquerque, N.M. with Boutique Airlines. Other Things to NoteMy property is at the end of a tree lined road and 300 yards from Whitewater Creek. This is an animal lovers paradise. The horses mow and fertilize the land, the ducks and chicken walk around during the day and sleep in their coop at night. The cats will roll onto their back for a scratch and Zsa Zsa the dog is always ready to demonstrate her tree climbing skills. The front gate is kept closed for privacy as well as to keep Zsa Zsa from jumping on your car and Koneha, my sweet 26 year old mare, from wandering off. Located in Glenwood, New Mexico, there are hot springs, labyrinths, galleries and ghost towns. This is the perfect place for relaxing, sightseeing, fishing, hiking, biking, horseback riding, birding and gazing at the starry starry night sky. *There are restaurants in Glenwood, Alma and Mogollon that provide wonderful meals, some as close as 1/2 mile from the cabin. * No restaurants are open for dinner on: Monday, Wednesday or Friday. The convenience store closes at 7 p.m. *The Glenwood Tavern is open intermittently. When they are open they have a limited inventory of beer, wine and hard liquor. Best to BYOB.
