When aliens chose to visit planet earth they selected New Mexico as the place to land. Or so the story has gone in Roswell since 1947 when the Roswell Army Air Field reported having recovered a crashed “flying disk.” Now each summer the town celebrates the “UFO Incident” with a weekend festival. An even more celebrated festival is staged each fall in the state’s biggest city, Albuquerque, when the International Balloon Fiesta lifts off. Promoters claim it is the most photographed event in the world.
Pictures of the New Mexico landscape have spread across the country since artist Georgia O’Keeffe arrived in Taos in 1929. She would stay for more than 50 years, becoming more associated with her land than any American painter. The Enchanted Circle Tour in north central New Mexico introduces property seekers to the vistas that inspired O’Keeffe and includes the 400-year old town of Santa Fe, the American capital city that rests at the highest elevation. Most New Mexico land is for sale in these sublime counties.
If all you know of New Mexico are O’Keeffe’s riveting images and the desolate backgrounds of Breaking Bad, you are missing the real New Mexico. The state features six of the seven life zones found on the planet and most of the terrain is actually forested, not desert. Outdoorsman can find property along fishing-rich streams and rivers and some of the state’s 30 major lakes will freeze in the Sangre de Cristo Range for ice fishing.
The Land of Enchantment dazzles visitors with its unique natural attractions. Carlsbad Caverns shows off the world’s seventh-largest underground chamber in southeast New Mexico. The gypsum sand dunes at White Sands National Monument are the world’s largest. Unlike ocean sands the gypsum does not convert sunshine into heat and these blindingly white dunes can be traversed in bare feet even at high noon in July.
