I stayed at one of the two rooms at the Fields Motel. No Television, No Wifi....? Heck I even heard no radio stations. So what to do? I saw some people enjoying local birds nearby who were more than friendly to share their knowledge and experience of local birds. Fields Station was founded in 1881 and it appears there were bits of history all around. From the old school next to the motel. To the stone stables falling down in disrepair a crossed the street. It is a wonderful jumping off point. For wildlife enthusiasts, sportsmen, people who like old historical buildings. Alford Desert is nearby, Steen and Pueblo Mountains. I personally went with Friends I share a interest in Herpetology (Reptiles) with. But I am also a rock hound. I was successful here in both of these categories. I'd have one of the large home style breakfasts they served in the cafe in the morning. Then I would come back between 3-4PM for a break with one of the wonderful milkshakes they serve as well. Fields Station is a interesting and unique place. Next to the small town (4 buildings, 2 after a fire) by my parents ranch. I don't think I have often seen so many things put into two buildings. A two room motel, a cafe, store, bar, liquor store and gas station (that sometimes serves airplanes). All run by a nice Young family who, by the time I left treated Me like Family. It's not a Best Western or Olive Garden. To Me, with it's uniqueness and genuine warm friendliness. It's better. It's definitely not from a mold. If these are things You like. This may be for You. If Your just going through. It's a great place to stop for a milk shake, I also heard their burgers are pretty good? It's also the only gas for maybe 80 miles in either direction.
