Yes, that was mentioned on the Santa Fe Trail site. Water and ultilties brought to the building site. The water is Trinidad's City Water which is probably a plus. Although there are so many all year running type creeks that you could probably use for irrigation. I am always planting like 100s of blueberry bushes for "what ever reason" so I always need irrigation.

Which would necessitate water rights, of course.

Default Is Trinidad really the transexual capital of the US

My brother who lived there tell me this. True or false?

True to the extent that it has a number of medical practices that focus on this segment of the industry.

There's a fair number of doc's whose main practice in other cities is supplanted by their trips to Trinidad to offer certain specialty services. I know, for example, a hand/maxilofacial doc from a big city who spends a lot of time in Trinidad creating "real breasts" on males .... similar docs do other specific body parts (removal or installation) on demand to effect a physical change-over. It's all part of a long-term process, involving psychologists as well as the plastic surgery.

Kind of interesting that one of the most bada** towns of the Old West would 100 years later become the sex change capital of the world (or at least the U.S.).

I saw a documentary on LOGO about the town and the transsexual procedures being performed there. It's definitely an interesting place and pretty cool that for the most part everyone gets along. Apparently if it weren't for the transsexual operations, Trinidad most likely would have lost its only hospital.

To call it the transex capital is pretty far fetched. The streets are not teaming w/ transexuals. There are a few folks around town that live and work here, primarily while they are going through some of the process. Most all of the people that visit Dr Bower, have their procedures, and return to their own lives elsewhere. Dr Bower, BTW is trans, and aquired her practice from a Dr that first began here in the 60's. It is true, her practice is largely responsible for the hospital remaining fluid. The procedure is very expensive, and is a cash deal. There is no blantant advertising, it is a very respectable practice. Our community supports her and her effort to help those with this need. It is worth pointing out that Trinidad is a very strong Catholic community, primarily guided by christian principals and values. It is a very fractional part of a beautiful mountain community, with fantastic residents, and a diverse history that is endless.

I think Trinidad is a wonderful little town that is on my list for retirement. I spend at least a week there every year and hadn't seen anything weird walking around so if they are they are. I will be looking at some of lots (35 acrea ones) on the Santa Fe Trail between Raton and Trinidad on the pass. Have you seen any of those lots?
