New Mexico Is Home To These 7 Underrated Ancient Wonders
New Mexico has been a state for a little over a century now but its history dates back millennia with evidence of its past peppered around the state. Ancestral Puebloan dwellings are among those surviving relics of its human history, slowly fading back into the landscape.
Due to their size and longevity, many of these locations are impressive feats that document life hundreds of years ago and you can easily visit them. Here are a few of our favorites to get you started.
