The Peaceful New Mexico Grassland You’ve Never Heard Of But Need To Visit

New Mexico is known for its high desert, alien landscapes and lush forests, but did you know that we have a prairie too? It’s called the Kiowa Grassland. Unless you travel the more remote areas of northeast New Mexico, you may not know about this expansive area of public land. It’s rich with history and great for outdoor recreation like hiking, biking, camping, and wildlife viewing.

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:

Have you been to Kiowa National Grasslands? How about Mills Canyon? What did you think? Are you ready to explore the area now? Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments.
