If any members come out this way, contact me in advance and I can meet you and show you to really interesting sites or show you what is at least worth looking at.
Our spring is not nice because of the wind. We get gale force winds out of the north here. February to April are the worst. We are not AZ and never get the heat they do.
The only thing between us and the North Pole is a three strand barbed wire fence.....and one of the strands are down.
New Mexico is high in elevation but you don't know it. Albuquerque is higher than Denver. My house sits at 8,000 feet but you have no idea until you go outside and do work. Lower O2 levels.
Most days you can see 100 miles if in the open areas. Every thing is far apart in this state but the roads are good and traffic is light.
