We're going to Taos for a vacation later this month, flying in and out of
Albequ. and I was wondering if anyone knows of a good place there to
purchase -- or at least look at -- local lumber like mesquite or something
I've never seen it grow anywhere north of Texas, and according to the
book "The Magnificent Mesquite" by Ken E. Rogers (I said "Ken E." not
"Kenny") that except for sparse areas in the southern corners of
California, Nevada, Utah, and Colorado, Oklahoma is about as far north
as you're going to see it. Interestingly, it does grow in many other
continents: Central and South America, Africa, Central Asia, and Australia.
Any given amount of traffic flow, no matter how
sparse, will expand to fill all available lanes.
Steve is right...not much mesquite here. Native woods are mostly
ponderosa pine, juniper, cedar, spruce.
In Taos don't miss the Fechin House. He was a Russian woodworker that
did some really good stuff for his house in the Southwestern style
