Did you know that the oldest and highest capital city in United States is in New Mexico? Also within the boundary of New Mexico is a supervolcano, towering rocks made of volcanic ash and badlands that hide the fossils of dinosaurs as well as almost 1000-year-old mesa-top and cliff-cave dwellings, ancient footpaths and petroglyphs. New Mexico is a secret waiting to be uncovered for anyone willing to enjoy its beautiful landscape, geology and history.
Our trip to New Mexico came out to be one of the least expensive we have had thus far, grand totaling at just under $700 for a whole week of exploration for our family of five (includes flight, hotel and rental car).
