In 1996, Debbie and Alan Eggleston purchased part of the 100 year old Hooker Ranch. It became the Double E Ranch and for 22 years, they operated it as a working cattle, horse and guest ranch on nearly 30,000 acres snugged up against the legendary Gila National Forest and Gila Wilderness area. The specialty at Double E Ranch was providing guests with the opportunity to experience the undiluted, real sensations of southwestern New Mexico ranch life.Rider Preparing

Every week is a great week to Rent the Ranch at Double E Ranch. Although we are at 5,000 feet elevation and are considered 'high desert', we are far enough south to have mild weather in every season compared to most other parts of the country. Our winters are very similar to Tucson, AZ – 48F to 72F in January/February! When the sun comes up above the mountain the temperature warms quickly. Skies are blue, the air is clean and crisp, and with an average of 300 days annually of sunshine. In southwestern New Mexico, the weather is nearly perfect! Summers in our part of southwest New Mexico are warmest from mid-June to August, averaging 85-98 F. Average humidity levels hover between 10% - 40%. Evenings cool down to low 70's, usually a soft breeze. Average rainfall of 9 - 15 inches annually. Sit on your covered deck, watch the thunder clouds develop and listen to the rain hitting melodically on your tin roof. Quickly passing, the air is cool, clean and crisp. Spectacular!
