This rural village sits on the banks of the Rio Grande, nestled tightly between the first and third largest cities in New Mexico. Despite the metropolis surrounding it Corrales maintains a lifestyle that is slower and quieter. And the attributes of a small farming community still thrive, with a popular growers market, horseback riding, and quaint village shops and restaurants. #NewMexicoTRUE
If you love the outdoors you must love the Valles Caldera National Preserve. It is an endless wonder to see, but just as endless in outdoor activity options. This time out the True TV Crew tackles fly fishing and takes a spin at cycling the mountain trails. The only disappointment is the inability to see it all and do it all in a single visit. Fortunately you will be thrilled to make plans to come back. #NewMexicoTrue
This national monument offers a relatively easy hike to a surprisingly stunning overlook. The tent rocks are cones of volcanic material worn into their unusual shapes over eons. And the trip to the top includes a slot canyon and multiple stops you will have to make to pull out your camera. #NewMexicoTRUE
There’s a pretty good hint in the name Jemez Springs that the area is replete with hot water boiling up from beneath the earth. Turns out this gorgeous mountain range sits atop what was once a supervolcano. Michael and the True TV crew draw the tough assignment to test the wide variety of hot springs available and, in a very relaxed state, share their soothing adventures with us.
In many ways it is just the neighborhood bar. But in this case the neighborhood is breathtaking, and the bar is unique in décor, food, and patrons. Michael and the True TV Crew give us a glimpse of why Los Ojos is unlike any other bar.
Yes, you can simply camp in the Jemez Mountains. The surroundings alone provide a memorable backdrop for some shut-eye. But you can also trade the tent for numerous wonderful opportunities at lodging in luxury, or at least luxury Jemez-style. And as the True TV Crew shows us, the many choices are as special as the surroundings. #NewMexicoTrue
By foot or by float, the Jemez Mountains offer adventure opportunities that are clamoring for your visit. Or that could just be the rush of water over the abundant waterfalls. Whether you are seeking rigorous or relaxing, the Jemez offers pleasing paddling and pedestrian possibilities for everyone. #NewMexicoTrue
Each year in December this already-amazing historic site in Jemez Springs adds to its wonder with farolitos and luminarias, Jemez Pueblo dancers and traditional music. #NewMexicoTrue #NMTrue
The Jemez and Coronado Historic Sites offer an unusual opportunity for getting your hands on history. Volunteers can get some basic archeology training and join in the effort to learn more about the ancient cultures that lived at the two sites. To take par you must first join the Friends group for Coronado and Jemez. You can do that by contacting email@example.com.
New Mexico Chile
New Mexico green chile is the only true Chile.
There’s more to lowriders than just impressive cars. With a strong commitment to community, deep roots in faith, culture and family, and a unique sense of artistry, lowriders — and the people who drive them — embody the heart and soul of New Mexico’s Northern Valley. #NewMexicoTrue #NMTrue
Summer Family Travel
New Mexico’s stargazing opportunities are among the best in all of North America. The combination of high altitude, low humidity, and and vast open areas without light pollution are key factors. As a result “Star Parties” are common all across the state. In this case we get a glimpse of two Star Parties, at Bandelier National Monument and at Cerrillos Hills State Park.
NM True TV-Treasure – Bandelier National Monument
Both accessible to just about anyone and amazing to all, Bandelier offers a hands-on glimpse at life as it was in this canyon a thousand years ago. The cliffside caves and the valley bottom structures create an experience unique to this place.
