When I visited New Mexico last week, I was struck by the picture postcard scenery. Majestic mountains, wide open spaces, skies painted with the whole palette of southwestern colors, ranging from scarlet and gold to deep violet. And sunsets to rival those in Key West. Pine trees, desert shrubs and dramatic rock formations have inspired New Mexico artists for centuries.
And if you thought the desert landscape was devoid of flowers, think again!
A road trip is always an adventure in the southwest, because you'll find an exciting vista around every curve in the road.
Snow capped mountains were a surprise and reminded me of Switzerland.
Next week, I'll feature Route 66, a bucket list road trip that has always enticed me!
By Mary Kennedy, happy travels!
