This Natural Wonders Road Trip Will Show You New Mexico Like You’ve Never Seen It Before

Although there are plenty of impressive manmade structures in New Mexico, it’s hard to compete with our state’s natural wonders. All New Mexicans should see these astounding sights at least once in their lifetime. We’ve grouped the best of the best into a handy road trip to make this challenge easier.

Just find the section of the route closest to you and start driving! Although the full loop involves an epic 26 hours of drive time, it’s easy to break the journey up into a northern and southern loop as well.

Here is the Google Map for the trip.
