Jump Ship: Ranch for Sale in Mosquero, NM

The essential details: “920 acres with two houses, lots of water & wildlife for $339,000. We would also consider selling 2,886 acres at $359.00 per acre. This is well below appraisal, & we will retain mineral & wind rights.”

I reported a story there last September for Outside magazine, and can vouch for the property’s stark beauty and utter remoteness. Also: the prevalence of tarantulas and rattlesnakes. Would be a great place to ride out Y3K, if humankind makes it that far.
