New Mexico is known as the Land of Enchantment. Do you know why? Because of New Mexico’s scenic beauty and rich history. Do you know where to get a “Breaking Bad” donut? At Rebel Donut in Albuquerque of course! There are so many things to learn about New Mexico, which only becomes more apparent as you sail through the sky overlooking her gorgeous desert terrain and of course the snow capped mountain ranges. While the unforgettable sight of the NM landscape may be your only reason for visiting, we recommend you stop by some of our favorite places as well. Don’t just take a sip of New Mexico, drink it all in!
The Rio Grande: This is on everyone’s list am I right? This beautiful gorge and river travels from Colorado all the way to the Gulf of Mexico passing through several different climates and geographical regions on its way. But what makes the Rio Grande so special in New Mexico is the gorgeous multicolored cliff sides that curve with their creator through the mountains and plains that we call home. Flights over this monument give you an especially beautiful sight that you can’t experience on a drive there.
Wheeler Peak: Located in the Sangre De Cristo range, Wheeler Peak is the tallest peak in New Mexico, but we like it for the view. Standing with a blue sky background, the pristine white capped peak looks incredible and offers us and our riders one of the best skylines you could ever imagine here.
Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks: The cone shaped rock formations on this plateau are products of volcanic eruptions that occurred over 6 million years ago! This place is just plain cool to see and hike.
Albuquerque’s International Balloon Fiesta: We saved our best for last! During the gorgeous month of October all ballooning providers in the state and some out of state guests come to Albuquerque for one of the largest ballooning festivals in the world. Over 500 balloons dot the sky giving the best show to onlookers as well as participate in many events including a special mass ascension for balloonists of many nations all launching to the sounds of their anthems!
So many of these locations are not as well known as others but that is the reason we love it here. The small town charms of the area coincide well with her booming metropolitans like Albuquerque or Las Cruces. So come and see the state from a view you could only dream of and then take a short drive to one of its many locales to get that rich New Mexico taste!
Very few things are as beautiful as a brightly colored hot air balloon sailing silently across the New Mexico sky. The colorful splash across blue skies inspires wistful awe. The only joy greater than the sight is the flight itself; made from high above the Land of Enchantment!
