Signs of New Mexico

New Mexico is road trip country. Its two lane rural roads cut through ranch land and mountains. And you’ll often be alone save a pick up truck or two. The naming of the routes can be quite literal and representative of the American Southwest.

An accurate description this was indeed a back road.

I don’t think Tumbleweed Road has changed much since its inception. Surrounded by open plains it must be the perfect breeding ground for this American icon.

Western Road is lined with horse and cattle ranches.

Peaceful Way is located in Madrid a former mining town now inhabited by artists, hippies and bikers.

Hi Wendy!
Where are you? Haven't seen you at Blogtrotter, which is leaving Iceland, but before departing is showing you the incredible Blue Lagoon. Enjoy and have a fabulous weekend!

Hi Wendy,
Good to get out of the city in summer - even if it's just a daytrip to Jones Beach. I love New Mexico and for some reason it's been on my mind lately. Lucky you. Wishing you the best.
