Las Cruces, New Mexico, United States

The shipping container is located just 2 miles from the Dona Ana Mountains portion of the Organ Mountains - Desert Peaks National Monument, a popular mountain biking and hiking area. The monument can be quickly reached on foot or mountain bike without crossing a paved road! The Downtown Farmer's Market (Wednesdays & Saturdays, 8:30 am-1 pm), Las Cruces museums, and numerous restaurants are 10-15 minutes away! White Sands National Monument is a pleasant 50-minute drive. Nature abounds in the immediate vicinity of the shipping container. Coyotes are seldom seen, but often heard at night. Gambel's quail constantly roam nearby. (In spring or summer, it's sometimes possible to view them with their young, very cute.). A couple of resident road runners "patrol" the property. Several pyrrhuloxia (desert cardinals) live nearby (beautiful birdsong). Occasionally, red-tailed hawks fly overhead. Great horned owls can sometimes be heard late at night and have been seen a few times. Black-chinned hummingbirds often visit the numerous desert willow flowers in season. Black-tailed jackrabbits and cottontails are frequent visitors. Several types of lizards live nearby, with the beautiful horned lizard occasionally making an appearance. (Rattlesnakes live in the desert, of course, but are seldom seen.)

We're an active couple who enjoy traveling and making new friends. (We recently spent a wonderful week in Budapest.) One of us hails from Belgium and the other lived there for many years. Yanick is an artist (jewelry & photography) and Tim does something with computers. When we are not creating art, spoiling our dogs or wandering off trail in the nearby mountains, we often go in search of the perfect cup of coffee (cappuccino for Yanick, double espresso long shots for Tim) and a delicious dessert.
