The harvest moon was bright lighting up the sky. At dark, we have been seeing shooting stars over the Peloncillos. Our orchard has provided abundant apples and pecans. We've enjoyed delicious Granny Smith pies and sold a few at the Portal Octoberfest fundraiser. The pecans are almost ready to pick. The mule deer and Javelina come for the extras on the ground. The trails at South Fork, Silver Peak, and Cathedral Rock are colorful with the change of seasons.

The days are beautiful with cool mornings, blue skies, and warm afternoons. Our guests enjoy a small fire in the wood stove after a day on the trails. Quailway Cottage is truly a place to restore your soul and renew your spirit.
