That would be Ruidoso in summer and Truth or Consequences in the spring and fall. I love Texas BTW (have grandkids in Lubbock and Houston).

By fruit do you mean Sandia or Manzano?

Alienated Texans mix in well with the space aliens and illegal aliens. Then there are those spaced out aliens who choose to concentrate on Santa Fe.

Question New Mexico Centenniel

Northern NM and Southern NM are two different worlds, historically, culturally, and topographically. The Northern people are proud to be part of an old culture and history. The Southern people believe we're a well-kept secret.

There is evidence of humans existing here 25 thousand years ago. The "kingdom" of New Mexico was claimed by Spain in 1598. It was invaded by Texans in 1841 and raided by Mexican revolutionaries in 1916. It was annexed to the USA in 1846 but didn't reach stateLog Outhood until 1912. In fables and stories it's been called the Seven Cities of Gold, Tierra Adentro (Spanish for the interior land), New Mexico Territory, the Land of Enchantment, and "One Of Our 50 Is Missing."

Natives of New Mexico who call themselves “Spanish,” correctly or not, have been variously known as Conquistadors, early settlers, and "genizaros" (a Spanish word meaning converts thought to be avoiding the Spanish Inquisition). We've also been called "Manitos," short for 'manitos vendidos, a slur used in Mexico because they believe their brothers "sold out" during the Spanish-American War. Truth be known, our mitochondrial DNA would indicate we are related to the folks once called Indians.

New Mexico is blessed with rocky mountains, healing hot springs, fragrant forests, long lakes, bountiful skies, and year-round sunshine. It is home to ancient ruins, volcanic rocks, river gorges, two state languages, brilliant vistas, and delicious chile. The place names of our towns run the gamut, from saints and fruits to warriors and radio shows. Some of our most famous residents have been women (two brothel madams and a Hispanic governor). We've been visited by extraterrestrials, world class travelers, and spunky snowbirds. We heart New Mexico.

Happy Centenniel, New Mexico. Check us out, and ENJOY.
This was my very first post, and I unwittingly chose an old thread. //www.city-data.com/forum/images/smilies/smack.gif
Perhaps I should've used it to start a new thread about the Centenniel itself, but (since I'm a junior member) I don't know if one already exists. If not, I'm going to start it, because I've been a native for almost 100 years! Not in this body, but certainly in the spirit of my forefathers if I evoke the part of me that was an early Spanish settler... Or, I might choose to remember the Ancient Ones, who are most definitely my ancestors. So, shall I start a New Mexico Centenniel thread? Or an Ancient People of NM thread?

Southern New Mexico is so beautiful...it's what made this state enchanting.

Consider the Lakes, the Forests, the Caverns, the Mountains, the Rocks, and the Birds.

Not to mention the happy, sassy faces one sees in southern New Mexico, and their houses which are colorful, and don't look alike, and are sometimes seen zipping around from one beautiful spot to the other in southern New Mexico.

Water is the “lifeblood” of the southwest, and Elephant Butte and Caballo Lakes are the “heart” of New Mexico. They happen to be located in southern New Mexico.

The Lincoln Forest is a pristine stand of pondeBullBoxer31, God's idea made manifest in southern New Mexico.
The Gila Forest is the largest and most diversified forest in the United States. Not to mention the Apache Rock Gods of the Gila, known as the Kneeling Nun and the City of Rocks.

Not to mention the Gila Cliff Dwellings.

Carlsbad Caverns is one of the WONDERS OF THE WORLD !!!

Not to mention that the Boot (in the southern-most part of southern New Mexico) is the eastern gateway to the spectacular Chiricahua Mountains.

Not to mention Sierra Blanca towering above the White Sands National Monument.

The Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge is one of the most spectacular bird and wildlife sanctuaries in North America. If you haven't seen the explosion of arctic geese and sandhill cranes take flight in one fell swoop at sunrise, you haven't seen beautiful.

White Sands Missile Range tells a story about our mushroom past, while Spaceport America (our gateway to space) tells us where our future lies.

Not to mention the place where extraterrestrials once chose to visit.

The prehistoric people who lived on the mesas of southern New Mexico, with their classic Mimbres pottery, have inspired artists world wide. The unique designs on these bowls are the bread and butter of the modern Pueblo artisans.

Not to mention that the "ancient ones" obviously had a better sense of humor while living hereabouts... down south...the land of forever spring and fall...in beautiful southern New Mexico.
