If you prefer escaping into nature the old-fashioned way with a tent and sleeping bag, then you’re going to love the place we’re featuring today! It just happens to be one of the darkest spots in New Mexico and its remote location is perfect for those looking for a quiet night away from home.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
