I discovered New Mexico in an overnight stay in Taos in August, 1999 and fell under the spell of New Mexico immediately (as so many do who actually stay a day or more in the state). The luminous light, the incredible skies, the colors of the earth, the wonderful warm and diverse culture, the smells like sage and green chile roasting and sweet pinon smoke, the deep powder of the mountain snows....kept bringing me back until I moved here from California in 2005.
If you have not planned a vacation this year, why not come to New Mexico? All your preconceptions about our state will be blown away if you come. Please check out this wonderful slideshow made by a couple of residents about what you will see in New Mexico.
