San Marcos/Lone Butte

Located on a high llano (plateau), this area was once a major center for farming and pottery making in the upper Rio Grande valley, but was abandoned after the 1680 Pueblo Revolt. It is now mostly residential. A gas station, restaurant and other services are here. A side trip on Hwy 45 leads you past 2 private New Mexico movie ranches (where over 100 movies were made). As you drive on, look at the open range in the direction of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, you may see antelope.
