Angel Fire Reviews

I love living here. It is to this day, 19 plus years from when I moved here, one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. It's not easy to live here, but it is safe, quiet, and beautiful. If you can do without creature comforts for the most part, and can take care of yourself roughing it, move here!

I came to Angel Fire 2 years ago from Texas and I can say it has had a positive impact on my life. Ever since I got here I have formed close relationships with some very unique individuals that I wouldn't have been able to meet elsewhere, and when I catch myself wishing that I was somewhere else, I always remind myself of the amazing experiences I've had here with my friends. If I had to change anything about it I would probably put in more youthful things to do like a skate park or an indoor rock climbing park.
