WELCOME TO NEW MEXICO
From its surreal inhabited ancient adobe dwellings to the nearly 50 award-winning wineries dotting the state’s landscape — see what makes this “Land of Enchantment” the smart choice for residents — as home to more PHD holders per capita than any other state in the country (thanks Microsoft co-founders Bill Gates and Paul Allen)!
As official home of the Wilderness Act in 1964, New Mexico proudly claims one of the most diverse landscapes in the world. From snow-capped peaks to brilliant wildflower fields and forests of towering cottonwoods, white sand dunes and expanses of prairies — with 75 percent of its roads unpaved, this nation’s fifth largest state offers a vast expanse for backpack exploration to an endless list of sweet spots.
While you’re at it, why not take a trek to the top of the Capulin Volcano for a towering view over five states—Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado and, of course, New Mexico. Just don’t forget to stop off on the breakfast burrito byway, where your choice of topping comes down to answering the state’s official question — “Red or Green?” It refers to chili preference, of course!
