Thousands Of Sandhill Cranes Invade The City Of San Antonio In New Mexico Every Winter And It’s A Sight To Be Seen
Winter in New Mexico is a delightful experience for all outdoor enthusiasts. Given the state’s geographic diversity, we have the option to prance through a winter wonderland on snow-covered mountains or warm-up on hiking trails and nature expeditions by heading south.
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/
The refuge visitor center is open daily from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. between September 1 and May 31. General admission fees start at $5 per vehicle. You can find additional details by visiting the refuge’s website or Facebook page.
