They live in a 29-room adobe hacienda that they built themselves. This is where they raised their family and where their grandchildren visit. The gift shop displays beautiful jewelry made from rare Cerrillos turquoise and Variscite that they get from their two mining claims. The turquoise is a beautiful brilliant green, while Cerrillos Variscite is white. They cut and polish the turquoise stones and set them in silver. Todd uses techniques developed when he first came to Cerrillos in 1970. Their son Andy follows his dad's footsteps working with him at the mines. He also is an artisan and does quality turquoise custom jewelry & repairs. Visit the Mining Museum for $2 each. You will find a sprawling display on local history, prehistoric mining and territorial mines of the 1880's. Items include antique bottles, insulators, mine photos, tools, minerals and the unique finds from an 1880's Cerrillos outhouse dig. There are several friendly goats, chickens and pigeons to feed at the Petting Zoo. The brown llama has beautiful long eyelashes and eats from your hands. Food is for sale in the gift shop. While children enjoy the live entertainment, take pictures of the animals to add to your adventures on The Turquoise Trail. « less
