We've traveled through New Mexico twice now, and the one thing we know is that we can't wait to get back.
The big skies, friendly people and the wonderful food are beckoning. Here are a few of our favorite photos from our visits:
Dia de los muertos, or Day of the Dead, celebrated in art at Pojoaque Pueblo near Santa Fe.
The fantastic snow at Taos Ski Valley, this shot from the West Basin.
Exploring the beautiful ruins of Chaco Canyon National Historical Park.
Enjoying the retro cool Enchanted Trails RV Park on historic Route 66 near Albuquerque.
Riding the wide-open roads near Truth or Consequences.
Shopping along the square in Santa Fe.
Exploring the trails at Capulin National Monument, a volcano crater in northeastern New Mexico.
