Raspberries and Alpacas

Before leaving for Angel Fire I called about somewhere to park the trailer.  As I was talking to the park owner, Monte Verde RV Park, she said we would be there in time to pick raspberries.  WHAT!?  We have been coming here for years.  I did not know there were raspberries to be picked.  Sure enough, near Mora there is a raspberry farm.  We decided what the heck – let’s go pick some.  The name of the farm is Salman Ranch.

Going back to Angel Fire we stopped to look at the alpaca farm, Victory Ranch.  I may have to take up my knitting again.  That fiber is awesome!!  Not sure I can afford it but I loved the yarn.  And the alpacas are so cute!

They are sheared once a year in June and invite people to come help or just watch.  They also have tours and let kids feed them.  Well, anyone really.  And they have spinning classes.  Now that sounds like fun!  I may check into it next ;year.  And if you buy their yarn, the dye lot is the name of the alpaca it is taken from.  Yep, worth the trip.
