We booked a last minute trip to see the balloon festival in Albuquerque and it turned out great! The views were incredible and Melinda and Brent were so hospitable. It’s about an hour drive from the festival, but we would absolutely stay here again next year. Highly recommend.

The view at Plateau Hame De Colquhoun is amazing. It is a really unique spot. Brent and Melodie were incredibly helpful and accommodating. As others have noted make sure you have plenty of time to reach the grounds before sunset.

First, Melodie and Brent live on this land. They are awesome hosts, giving you a quick rundown of the property then letting you go do your thing. Felt like we were alone the entire time. Views are awesome. Stars at night were spactacular. Everything we wanted! FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS EXACTLY AND TAKE YOUR TIME GETTING THERE.

Melodie and Brent are the most friendly and accommodating hosts. Be sure to follow their detailed directions, and allow plenty of time to get there before sunset. It took us almost an hour after taking exit 191 off I-25 to reach the camp. We have a towed car with very low clearence so we were going really slow.
But once we get there the place is breathtaking, unobstructed views for miles in all directions. The only distractions we had during our weeklong stay were a few free-roaming cows walking by. Time slows down here. Perfect place for watching sunrise and sunset, stargazing, and pondering the meaning of life :)
The Mesa is untamed land so you do want to bring the essentials you need. You will have the best experience here if you are self-sufficient.
We got to talk to the host family about their plans to develop the land, and to preserve its beauty at the same time. They have great ideas and they are hardworking folks, but most of all, their hospitality truly heartwarming. We wish them best of luck, and hope to visit again in the future.
P.s. the Verizon cellphone signal was surprisingly good in this area.
