Most People Think New Mexico Is Just A Desert But A Drone Proves The State Is So Much More

If you’ve never visited New Mexico, you might think this Southwestern state is mostly just desert (or you imagine it looking exactly like Breaking Bad), but this incredibly beautiful state has so much more to offer. Although the climate is considered high desert, this means that there are tons of snowcapped mountains, beautiful forests, and epic otherworldly rock formations. Before you write off this state as nothing but sand dunes, cacti, and rattlesnakes, watch this amazing video filmed by drone along a week-long roadtrip through some of New Mexico’s most beautiful terrain.
