Reserve is a village (the heart of the Gila National Forest)

 located in Catron County, New Mexico  . [approximately 200 miles southwest of Albuquerque, near the Arizona/New Mexico border. ] As of the 2000 census, the village had a total population of 387. It is the county seat of Catron County.

  • At almost 7000 square miles, it is one of the largest counties in the USA, bigger than the state of Connecticut.
  • Roughly 2/3 of the land there is owned by the federal and state governments. Most of the 3.3 million acre Gila National Forest is within Catron County borders.
  • The Gila National Forest is the sixth largest National Forest in the continental United States.
  • The county has only 3543 residents, according to the 2000 census. That's about one person every 2 square miles!
  • On December 1, 1884, near town (then called Frisco), deputy sheriff Elfego Baca held off a gang of 80 Texan cowboys who wanted to kill him for arresting cowboy Charles McCarty. The cowboys were terrorizing the area's Hispanos and Baca was working against them.

    On December 8th, in 1981 an enormous UFO shaped like an orange ball, and estimated to be 750 feet in length, made a number of turns in the sky south of Reserve, New Mexico at 7:30 p.m. and then executed a ninety-degree turn near Luna Mountain. The five witnesses said they saw a jet aircraft chase the UFO out of sight. (Source: International UFO Reporter, June 1982, p. 15).


    * The Mace-Kingsley Ranch School, is operated in Reserve, New Mexico by Scientologists.
    The Mace-Kingsley Ranch School was founded in 1987 to help create a new
    civilization by producing graduates who are willing and able to
    demonstrate competence in life.  At this location, they receive children
    from all over the United States, and even other countries, many of who are
    in trouble...." all of whom benefit from the clean, safe environment and the
    application of standard tech."

    ****************Mimbres River

    The Mimbres starts in the Gila National Forest near Wall Lake flowing south.

    It goes underground for most of the year near the City of Rocks, through Deming and emptying south of the border into Mexico. 

    **************The following is from a friend :

    I have never been able to verify this .. but  here is
    the story:

    About  a year or so ago.. ************ alleges they were
    camping  out  in the area outside of a place called
    Reserve, New Mexico...

    It was like. 2 AM in the morning. and  well...   what
    they SAY they say is they saw Aircrafts that were landing. 

      Only problem is :  In the morning, when  they went to  try to
    investigate.. there was nothing there!

    Seems that the earth may have opened up and these
    planes were able to fly INTO the ground and into some
    kind of underground facility...west of Reserve, NM .
    in Arizona.

    Any thoughts?
