Madrid Shop

The little town of Madrid NM has been a mining town, an abandoned site, a home to "hippies", and now an artist colony of funky shops and houses on the Turquoise Trail.

    Dave,

    Never heard of Madrid but it looks like a fun place. I looked it up on the map, and now wish I had taken the road you did when we went to Santa Fe. Maybe next time!

    It was a great little stop. A beautiful road to drive from Tinkertown to Sante Fe. I am sure glad we used the Turquoise Trail...

    If you ever watch the movie Wild Hogs, they spend a good part of the film in Madrid. When we were there they had NO cell phone service, and we signed a petition that a store owner was sponsoring to get a cell tower in the area. In the movie, they used their cell phones significantly in the plot. Now I wonder if they got the tower, or if it was just a plot device that could not have happened there.
