The Story Behind New Mexico’s Living Ghost Town Will Fascinate You

Out-of-staters often have inaccurate ideas about New Mexico’s geography. They’re surprised that the Rockies extend into the Land of Enchantment and are shocked that we get snow. Many also fail to realize that northeastern New Mexico is similar to the Plains states.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
