New Mexico Maps, Guidebooks, and Links
Sitting at the southern end of the great Rocky Mountain chain is New Mexico, land of enchantment. With its landscapes ranging from 13,000 foot mountains in the north to low desert plains in the southeast, there's something for everyone here. Much of the state is in public domain and is quite accessible. The high mountains in winter provide skiers, snowboarders and snowmobilers prime terrain and snow conditions. Hikers, bikers, campers, climbers and horseback riders enjoy this same terrain in the warmer months. With 256 days of sunshine and numerous lakes and rivers to choose from, opportunities for fishing, rafting, sailing and kayaking abound. New Mexico's deep cultural heritage of Hispanic and Indian traditions, along with a wealth of visual and performing arts, make for a multitude of venues throughout the year.
