I would choose Southern NM over Northern NM cause Im not too much of a fan of Northern NM but I like the desert scenery and temps of Southern NM.

I like Eastern NM better than any where else in NM though

I'm not exactly sure why my comment would be considered "paranoid" or exactly why I am being compared to Al Sharpton.

Challenge: Name a 13,000 foot mountain outside of the Sangres.

In fact, how many 12,000 foot mountains can you name outside the Sangres?

Yes, it gets cold up here in the north -- but the reason is that we are higher.

answer #1 -probably none!
answer #2- not very many, if any!

You guys want some 13,000 ft. mountains? My state will lend ya some! lol

Seriously, a handful, maybe 10, not a lot more than 10. Am only going by memory, not looking at the net here. Wheeler's the biggest, near Red River. Truchas is a 13er, ne of Santa Fe. Not sure if Santa Baldy is a 13er, know it's east of santa fe a ways, but it's up there.

But NM is different than in my state in one thing-Half of Colorado you may as well call Kansas.

And actually , I've been in Chama, Raton, Questa in January and spent the night in those towns in my travels. Cold? Yup!
But they don't stack up with cold weather in my state.

Yeh, I know. The Sangres are simply the tail end of a chain of real mountains in Colorado.

But there are unique things about New Mexico. And here is the biggest one; national parks and national monuments. I don't know the exact count combined, but I think that New Mexico has more national parks and monuments in their state than any other state. I'm gonna have to look that up on the atlas if i could figure out where I stashed it!

cause when something isnt racial, Al Sharpton will make it a racial issue just like when you posted that it was a thread to divide us, which I dont think it was meant to be

basically its making something out of nothing and everyone is always so paranoid that someone is trolling or whatever the hell people like to call it, its an internet forum open to anyone so there will be troublemakers and I could care less who trolls and who dont

I agree Desert Sun, if someone doesnt like a topic just dont answer it, its that simple. My motives have been questioned on other threads as well. What could my motives possibly be? I am asking direct questions. I have noticed paranoia does run deep on this site and everyone likes to accuse people of trolling. Who gives a crap if someone calls me a troll.
