"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

Pie Town


IMG_0370 (Medium)

About forty miles into New Mexico from the Arizona border on Hwy 60 you will enter Pie Town.  A wide place in the road that you could miss on a dark night; it is known throughout the modern World as the location of pie(s).

Pie Town is without many of todays modern conveniences such as cell phone service.  When was the last time you saw a working one of these?

What it does have is pies of many variations.  Pecan/oat, apple/red chili, and many other flavors.  All warm from the oven, as the kitchen was visable and they were working hard to keep up with the demand.  One of the owners was constantly calling back telling them what kind to start next.

We tried both of those mentioned and they were fine.  Not cheap, but a piece of pie and a cup of good coffee really helped the boring miles go by.

Just another one of life’s little surprises…..jc
