These 15 Aerial Views In New Mexico Will Leave You Mesmerized

New Mexicans like to observe the world from a different perspective. After all, Spaceport America, the Earth’s first commercial spaceport, is located in the southern half of the state. We also provide lower tech ways to view the landscape, such as hot-air ballooning. The pattern of wind known as the “Albuquerque Box” makes our largest city ideal for the sport. So a surprising number of people take to the air above New Mexico. But what do they see? Blow your mind with these 15 aerial views of the state.

What image inspires you to take to the skies? Let us known in the comments.
