the Very Large Array is just that - extremely large array of radio telescopes linked together to search the universe for signals. Off Route 66 near Socorro NM these dishes form a majestic sight. the dishes move along tracks and can be moved closer...
1001 NM-1, San Antonio, NM 87832, USA
Snowy egrets, geese, herons, cranes, owls, pheasants and road runners abound in the Bosque del Apache. My aunt and uncle lived in their RV at the refuge for two winters, volunteering at the visitor's center and on the "farm" plowing under the...

If you're passing through southern New Mexico, the town of Hatch--the chile capital of the world'--merits a stop. Green chile peppers, red chiles, fresh, dried, roasted, jarred--you name it, you'll find it in this unpretentious hamlet in the Rio...
Organ Mountains, New Mexico 88011, USA
Hike into Dripping Springs and visit the old abandoned sanitarium. Boyd’s was used as a mountain resort in the late 1800′s and purchased by Dr. Boyd in 1917 for his wife who was suffering from Tuberculosis. It is supposedly haunted and I can see...
White Sands, NM 88002, USA
Once a month there is an opportunity to camp under the stars and witness a full moon in White Sands, NM. But rarely do rain clouds fill the sky making for a spectacular display of a gray sky against the stunning white sand. I was lucky enough to...
New Mexico, USA
White Sands, NM is a place that can't be explained without seeing it for yourself. The park opens at 7am and I would highly suggest you go that early. The sunrise against the white sand dunes is absolutely stunning. Absolutely. There are less...
3004 Telescope Loop, Sunspot, NM 88349, USA
a DART (Dissappearing America Road Trip) brought us to Sunspot NM and the National Solar Observatory. The small town has the feel of an abandoned movie set from a 1950s sci-fi film. The several observatories can be visited as well as a quite nice...
3 Rivers Rd, Tularosa, NM 88352, USA
So much more than a stunning pile of rocks in the middle of a valley near Tularosa, the Three Rivers Petroglyphs Site is among the most accessible and dazzling collections of petroglyphs in the Southwest. Simply climbing along the short trail in...
4803 Rio Grande Blvd NW, Los Ranchos De Albuquerque, NM 87107, USA
John Gaw Meem is considered one of New Mexico’s most influential architects—and that fact alone makes this ranch, designed in 1932 by the so-called Father of Santa Fe style, worth a visit. But Meem isn’t the only big name...
207 W Hall St, Hatch, NM 87937, USA
New Mexico has an official state vegetable: the chile pepper. (In case you're wondering, only 13 out of the 50 states even have such a designation.) And the self-proclaimed chile capital is the tiny agricultural village of Hatch--population 1600....
2711 4th St NW, Albuquerque, NM 87107, USA
A modest, friendly family establishment (serving since 1963) where locals and visitors-in-the-know visit for flavorful James Beard award-winning New Mexican cuisine including carne adovada with warm, marinated roast cubed pork in a brick red chile...
1415 S Congress Ave, Austin, TX 78704, USA
If you're driving or walking down South Congress Ave on an afternoon or evening you'll smell the scent of pizza dough. It is an unmistakable smell and my girlfriend and I are convinced that Home Slice Pizza is actually setup to push the smell out...
1950 S IH 35 Frontage Rd, Austin, TX 78704, USA
I think that the Whip In is my favorite place in all of Austin. Anyone who knows me can probably guess this. I am biased, as our house is only a few blocks away (and I often joke that the main reason we bought the house was its proximity to the...
18300 Farm to Market Rd 1826, Driftwood, TX 78619, USA
One of the best things about Texas is the BBQ and the best ones are an hour or so outside the city. I went to the Salt Lick at Driftwood, about an hour or so outside of Austin. They have the best smoked sausage! Make a day trip out of this and...
