Carson Overview

Carson is a nothing town with no services on NM 567 west of Taos. Driving past Carson all you see is a mobile building with sign "Carson mail station". On my return trips to Utah and Wyoming I came to Carson as it was one of three access ways down to the bottom of the Rio Grande gorge where I camped for free. Unfortunately two seperate natural disasters closed two of the access routes to the river. The last access to the river gorge was closed by the government to protect us from having to much fun and free camping at the river.

That was true thirty years ago. For some time they re-opened the route through the Rio Grande Gorge (BLM) and Carson grew to a real community that was founded in 1908 to service the ranchers.
