Star PartiesNew 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.
CorralesThis 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
Tent RocksThis 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
