New Mexico

There's a reason New Mexico is called the Land of Enchantment! It's a truly magical place.

Earlier this year my husband and I visited thirteen states on an epic road trip from the Chicago-area to San Diego and back, taking a meandering loop that covered 6,479 miles. One place we didn't visit, and I wish we had, was Ruidoso, New Mexico. This resort town is off the beaten path and is exactly the type of place that filled our itinerary.
