New Mexico is a big State! Often a forgotten state, BUT it has some of most beautiful landscapes. The high desert climbs from cactus filled valleys to snow capped mountain tops. I’m been making it a priority, since the weather has been so nice, to get out and travel around this gorgeous state. My cousin and I decided to take a day trip south of Albuquerque.
