Watch Your Step, More Rattlesnakes Are Emerging From Their Dens Around New Mexico
Spring is well underway in the Land of Enchantment. Over the last couple of weeks, temperatures have been slowly warming up around the state, and nature is waking up.
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/
If you really want to avoid encountering rattlesnakes but still see lovely views, the Internet is filled with great photos and videos so you can enjoy nature from afar. We suggest starting with watching a short but impressive shot from a drone. Read more in Jaw-Dropping Drone Footage Of New Mexico’s Natural Beauty.
