THE FIFTH LARGEST STATE IS "THE LAND OF ENCHANTMENT" WHERE ALL CULTURES LIVE EITHER IN VILLAGES, PUEBLOS, OR CITIES. 

THERE ARE MANY FARM AND RANCH FAMILIES THAT KEEP THE FLAVOR OF NEW MEXICO CUSTOMS AND LIFESTYLES FLOURISHING FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS. 

THE NEXT TIME YOU ARE IN NEW MEXICO, FOLLOW THIS INTRIGUING LITTLE BIRD (STATE BIRD IS THE ROADRUNNER) DOWN SOME LESS TRAVELED ROADS.  YOU MAY DISCOVER SOME ENCHANTED AREAS THAT WILL MAKE A LIFETIME OF MEMORIES.  I DID... IN THE WINTER OF 1985.  I NEVER LEFT!

BIENVENIDOS...    NUEVO MEXICO!
