Take A 2-Hour Drive Through New Mexico To See This Year’s Beautiful Fall Colors
Looking for a reason to get out of the house this weekend? If a day trip through New Mexico’s enchanting scenery sounds like your idea of a fantastic afternoon, then you’ll want to check out one of the state’s lovely scenic byways.
Considering it is autumn, one perfect way to enjoy the chilling temperatures is by taking in all the lovely fall foliage. For that, we suggest taking a joy ride on New Mexico’s Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway.
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
