My husband and I visited Angel Fire, New Mexico this past week for our vacation. I have to admit I was really wanting to go somewhere else so we could swim but I am so glad we went to Angel Fire instead. Angel Fire is a beautiful paradise on a mountain and we had a great time that clouded those thoughts of another place right out of my head
The first thing I always notice aside from the view when we arrive is the smell. It smells like a heavenly mixture of fresh and clean smelling pine and spruce and there is just no way to get that same smell from a candle. I found myself inhaling that beautiful scent as often as possible.
To make the place even more beautiful to me there were fields of wildflowers that smelled heavenly too. The fields weren't the only place they grew. Wildflowers popped up everywhere in just about every color I could imagine. I found myself taking pictures everywhere.
We found a really awesome place to eat while we were there. It was a barbecue place called Holy Smoked Barbecue and More. I must say that it was some of the very best barbecue that we have eaten. The owners smoke their meat completely (No barbecue cheating at this place). Every brisket gets smoked for 24 hours and it tastes wonderful.
The portions at this place are absolutely huge and believe me when I say don't miss it! They also offer really great comfort foods as specials through the week and the owners, John and Wendy Hail are delightful to visit with. Along with their awesome cooking they also offer free coffee and WiFi. You can find Holy Smoked Barbecue And More out on Highway 434 on the end of a mini mall. You can also find them on facebook too. Again, this place is not to be missed. We loved it so much we went back a second time and even ordered the same things again!
If you are looking for a place to go where the temperatures are cool, the air smells heavenly, where there is lots to do such as fishing, hiking, and more; where there is lots of wildlife, and where the sunsets are gorgeous then, Angel Fire, New Mexico just might be the place for you.
