Chloride

An Englishman named Harry Pye, a mule skinner and prospector, was delivering freight for the U.S. Army from Hillsboro to Camp Ojo Caliente in 1879 when he discovered silver in the canyon where Chloride is now located. After completing his freighting contract, he and two others returned to the area in 1881 and staked a claim. A tent city grew up nearby and then a town, originally called Pyetown, then Bromide.

We had never been to New Mexico, but we'd been told it was beautiful. We called to make reservations for a month. A whole month in one place! Well, New Mexico is beautiful! Wow! How else can you describe an RV Resort that has so much natural beauty totally surrounding it!
