Tinkertown (Sandia Crest)

Destination #4: New Mexico and Colorado

Wow, I am not sure there are even words to describe Tinkertown, except VISUAL OVERLOAD. While this place has nothing to do with Tinker Toys, the website describes it as a folk art environment…I think that’s a pretty accurate description. It took Ross Ward over 40 years to collect, carve and construct all that you see—miniature scenes, whimsical displays, and eccentric collections of Americana that pack every corner of the property. I guess he was just a "tinkerer" who took it to a whole other level.  Really hard to describe but definitely weird and wonderful all at the same time.
