Baca County seat, Springfield was incorporated in 1889 and is home to about 1,500 people.

It sounds like the main legal stuff going on is ordinance #321 which allows for the keeping of chickens in town, but clearly states”the keeping of roosters over 6 months of age is prohibited” apparently there has been an increase of “rooster in town” complaints. Gobblers Knob I drove thru more grasshoppers than I have ever seen, it was like driving over popcorn. I was approached by several species of insect whenever I got out of my “pod”Great selection of antique stores in town. I saw lots of things I wanted but really only one thing I “needed” a jar of marbles. Good old glass cat eye’s but the bottle made in Spain was what I liked. It sounded like I would have about three choices for a burger in town so I opted for the “Trail’s End” perfectly attached to one end of an antique mall.I was first in line upon opening at 11am. Order at the counter and take care of all administrative needs at that time. I ordered the 1/2 pounder with everything on it. Fresh pressed pattie loaded with fresh condiments, this pattie hung over the edge of the bun all the way around. Cooked to perfection on an awesome bun, excellent cheeseburger at the end of the trail.
