We Are All Friends of 53
      (Posted 2012)  The Highway 53 corridor through Cibola and McKinley Counties is among the most beautiful, historically significant, and culturally rich areas in the State of New Mexico. It is al so one of the most valuable assets of the County for generation of tourist revenue, and all the ancillary benefits such activity generates.
      The Highway corridor has received two special area designations from the State. It is a portion of both the Ancient Way Arts Trail and the Trail of the Ancients Scenic Byway. It falls within the National Geographic Four Corners Geotourism Region, one of only 17 such areas in the world. It contains two National Monuments, many businesses, and a number of growing communities, all dependent on the same factors that make it a strong tourist attraction.
“Friends of 53” is the name of an open group of individuals who have come together to work toward the protection, enhancement, and promotion of Highway 53. Click here to read more

     Posted 2012) With such a diverse population of landowners, we all have at least one thing in common – a love of this place we call Timberlake Ranch. There must be many stories as how each of us discovered it. Please let us know how you came upon this beautiful setting hidden off of Highway 53. Was it word of mouth, advertisement or maybe just a wrong turn off the highway? There has been much interest and talk as to how we could chronicle the stories and share them – how many are similar and what are unusual. If you would please submit your story by mail to:
Nancy Wills
HC 61 Box 836
Ramah, NM 87321
We will compile the accounts and share “How Did You Get Here” in future Timberlake Times Newsletters. If you prefer to remain anonymous please let us know and we will honor your request when we publish our findings in the future.

Due to current drought conditions, the TRLA well will be closed, as of May 1st, 2014. The well will reopen when the region's water situation improves. The TRLA Bath House will remain open and operational. In an emergency, please contact a Board member. (Posted 4-20-2014)
