Pies in Pie Town, New Mexico
Pie Town, New Mexico and look at the PIES!. The Gathering Place is relatively new, it has been in business for two years.
The Pie Town Cafe and The Pie-O-neer Cafe were both closed today. I tied the horses outside on an old grey weathered wooden fence. Smiles greeted me from three women with white floured hands baking pies. I could not resist. “Blueberry please,” I said – after a breakfast burrito.
I sat next to a couple from Young, Az. They were off to look at petroglyphs near Socorro, NM.
It was like this in 2006 when I rode through. I think its the pies. Its like home and friendly and welcoming where people have time to sit down and have a cup of coffee and a piece of pie. No, Pie Town has not changed much, thank goodness!
P.S. The pie was spectacular like the vista’s of New Mexico
Our hostess Jeanetta Sturgeon took Rosie and I for a drive to Datil 20 miles east of Pie Town and we came across this sign. I have read “No Life For A Lady.” Jeanetta’s grandparents had historical ties to this area. These women in my humble opinion define courageous.
