Retired Scientists Are Brewing Up Hand Sanitizer At This Depression-Era Lab In Taos, New Mexico
With all the craziness currently going on in the world, hearing a bit of unique positivity can make another day in quarantine feel a little less mundane. Moments of our fellow humans giving back in small but profound ways—whether it’s sewing and donating protective masks or food to those on the front lines—make stay-at-home orders just a little more bearable.
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/
