    7x6andchg: I don't know if anyone on the board is from NM or has been to NM, but I just got back from vacation and I would just like to say it has to be one of the most beautiful, albeit dry, places in the USA. Highly recommended. Would welcome comments from residents or other visitors on your experiences.

    Being a resident of New Mexico, I appreciate your kind words about our beautiful state. I've lived here almost my entire life and also find it to be an incredibly inspiring and wonderous place. Glad to hear that you enjoyed your time here...

    7x6andchg: Cork 8x6-

    Finally someone responds!

    I'd move there in a heartbeat if it wasn't for all the attachments I have here in MN/WI.

    The Sandia Mountains at sunset was enough for me...it was warm and sunny and nice every day.

    And to not have to mow a lawn if I wanted to Zero-Scape.

    I was in Albuquerque proper...but we went to Rio Rancho and southern Bernalillo County too.

    Anyway - enough of boring the rest of the posters... ;D

    You're right, the scenery may be just enough to make you want to pack up and move here. If you're an outdoorsman, there really are few places that rival New Mexico for activities. You are also correct in mentioning how dry it is here: average yearly precipitation is approx. 9 inches.

    7x6andchg: Quite the contrast to the 50" of snow we get annually (which is actually only 5" of rain equivalent) here.

    *sigh* Wish was a little younger and didn't already own a home, etc.

    Where are all the other LPSG'ers here in New Mexico? Hmmm. Even if you're just passing through, drop me a line and say 'hello'.

    SpeedoGuy: I've been to NM on work related excursions several times over the past few years. Notably, the Los Alamos and Santa Fe areas as well as Albequerque and the high country north of Grants. I enjoy the scenery and the ambiance of the place. Jerkin is right, it does have a different feel than Arizona.

    Still planning on going back there - don't know when though.

    Thanks, Uncut and B-man. There is still much that is natural and native about this state... almost like it has been ignored as the rest of the country rushed to be "cultivated." Pluses and minuses to all of that, not to mention the fact that there are plenty of those pushing to get us all "caught up."

    What a bizarre resurrection of an old thread.:eek:

    However, I must completely agree with the above quote. I was born and raised in Albuquerque, and have lived here all my life. Our Sandias are the most beautiful sight one could ever imagine at sunset. The entire state is beautiful, in fact. It always makes me proud as a native New Mexican to hear others from around the country and around the world sing our praises!

    I go to Sante Fe every year during the Balloon Fiesta! I love NM; it's not called the land of enchantment for nothing!

    i absolutely loved new mexico. my family's moved around quite a bit, and new mexico was my favorite. we were homeless half the time but it didn't really matter. we always went on hikes in the mountains, and to this spring that we found. we were headed to arizona, but our car broke down in tejeras. then we moved to moriarty. often went to albuquerque b/c my parents made some friends there, including bobby unser jr. :smile: i remember going to his house for a cookout. it was nice. i was about 9 years old at the time. we lived there for a year. we all think that year was the best year we've had. it was a new chapter, and my parents' really turned their lives around for the better.

    i would definetely like to go back there sometime.
