COVID-19 UPDATE: Yesterday I announced a new public health order, effective June 1, continuing New Mexico's Phase One reopening progress.

Indoor dining, salons, gyms and indoor shopping malls will be able to reopen next week on a limited basis and in accordance with required COVID-Safe Practices, in addition to drive-in movie theaters, nine additional state parks, and additional hotel capacity (up to 50%).

Reopening our economy is not an invitation to forget about the risks of this virus – it is a mandate that we be more cautious and careful about our choices and decisions than ever before. Just because you can go doesn’t mean you should. Ask yourself: Is this business operating with safe practices? When in doubt, err on the side of safety and stay home.

Mass gatherings and congregations are still unsafe and prohibited, and face coverings must be worn in public settings.

Timeline PhotosThe virus that causes COVID-19 can spread from a person before they have symptoms. Take action to slow the spread by wearing a cloth face covering in public spaces, keeping at least 6 feet of physical distance, and frequently washing your hands.
A cloth face covering can be made from items around your home, such as a scarf or cloth napkin. Make sure the covering reaches above your nose and below your chin.

Coming into Questa (photo by Dan Kuehn)

Questa NM is renowned for the beautiful scenery surrounding our small, historic village. This is where you will find the rare trails into the Rio Grande Gorge, trout fishing for every skill level, and mountain lakes with trails that access the highest reaches of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains overlooking the area.

Sitting at 7,500 ft., Questa is the gateway to the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument, and the northern gateway to the Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway that surrounds the highest peak in New Mexico.

Our village stands in contrast to the resort towns on the east side of the mountains. A half-hour north of Taos, we are one in a long string of small, historic towns that scattered up the Rio Grande from what is now Mexico into southern Colorado in the 18th and 19th centuries. Questa was officially founded in 1842.

A rough and remote location, it was vulnerable to raids by Ute natives for generations. The Spanish Frontier heritage is still palpable. We remain a remote destination, though we do have a small airstrip, and are only a scenic half-hour’s drive north of Taos.

Taos is the place to be for fine dining and Native culture, and Red River, twenty minutes to our east, is busy with family-oriented amusements. But Questa is the getaway for full immersion into the natural beauty of New Mexico! Even on Memorial Day, when the Enchanted Circle fills with bikers, we offer the solemnity of our thousand-flag healing field beneath a silhouette of snow-capped mountains. It is not only our land, but also our culture that makes Questa unique.

Our thick-walled adobe church has stood at the center of our community since the mid-1800s and gave the village its original name of San Antonio del Rio Colorado. “Questa” was an Anglo attempt at simplification but became an official misspelling of the Spanish “cuesta,” referring to the “inclines” on the south of town and the ridge where the old church plaza stands.
