    Travelogues - New Mexico in Words

  • New Mexico Wanderings - Wow! A phenomenal amount of information about many of the nooks and crannies in the state of New Mexico. Extensive text and pictures of over 80 different locales. (Note: the Next button on these pages is inconsistent - sometimes you have to click on the word Next, other times you have to click at the very edge of the button.)
  • Voyage to Another Universe (1994) - by Karen M. Strom. Exhaustive travelogue. Huge, detailed, and very informative, describing a trip from Tucson up across northern Arizona and New Mexico, down through central and western New Mexico, and back to Tucson.
  • My New Mexico (Sept 1999) - by Elizabeth Anne VanderPutten. Although she's only visited the state twice, this is an informative description of her visit to the Albuquerque / Santa Fe / Taos region, including stops at Bandelier National Monument and El Santuario de Chimayo, San Miguel Chapel, St. Frances Cathedral, Loretto Chapel, and the Iglesia de la Virgen de Guadalupe mission church.
  • New Mexico and Arizona (with a little bit of Texas and a hundred yards of Utah) (1992) - by Evelyn C. Leeper. Good one: thorough, informative, less "personalized" than others.
  • Multifaceted New Mexico (March 1998) - by David Stybr. Interesting and informative description of visits to Alamogordo, Albuquerque, Bandalier National Monument, Carlsbad Caverns National Park, Carrizozo, Los Alamos, Roswell, Santa Fe, Socorro, and White Sands National Monument. From the General Observations section: "One surprise was that I had expected New Mexico to be almost a bilingual state, so I had hoped for some practice with my Spanish. Even though we saw plenty of Hispanics, especially in southern New Mexico, most of them spoke only English, even among themselves. Spanish seems much more widely spoken in Illinois. In fact, German actually was the foreign language we heard most often in New Mexico, due to the many tourists as well as the German air force training units there."
  • Roadtrip Across New Mexico: Route 66 - from Road Trip USA by Jamie Jensen. From a real, live travel guide, not as in-depth as some of the material in this list, but quite comprehensive and lots of details. Recommended. Covers Gallup, Grants, Albuquerque, Tucumcari, and points in between.
  • Roadtrip Across New Mexico: Route 80 - also from Road Trip USA by Jamie Jensen. This excerpt covers Lordsburg, Shakespeare, Deming, Las Cruces, and Mesilla, and even mentions Chopes (pronounced "cho'-pees"), home of the hottest green chile in the known universe. When I was a grad student at NMSU, hazing the incoming grad students meant taking them to Chopes early in the semester before anyone had warned them about the green enchiladas.
  • Roadtrip Across Texas and Southeast New Mexico: Route 80 - also from Road Trip USA by Jamie Jensen. This excerpt covers El Paso, Ciudad Juarez, Hueco Tanks, Guadalupe Mountains, Carlsbad Caverns, Carlsbad, Lubbock, and points east. "In the far-western stretches near El Paso, to maximize scenic interest, follow the slower but significantly more attractive route along US-180 past the beautiful Guadalupe Mountains, and veer across a corner of New Mexico to see the remarkable Carlsbad Caverns."
  • Traveling America's Highways: Route 66 (May 1991) - by Carol K. From Tucumcari to Gallup, through Albuquerque, El Malpais, and Bandera, following old Route 66. Pretty good. "As it seemed the thing to do, we had Mexican for breakfast. Arizona was just ahead. New Mexico was very picture post card--western vistas (mesas, red rocks, pines, volcanic cones), blue blue skies, and white clouds."
  • Exploring Albuquerque - by Bob Neubauer. Description of a newcomer's week-long visit to Albuquerque. The writing is a bit theatrical, but there's lots of good stuff too: "Though that event (the Balloon Fiesta) puts Albuquerque on the map, and Santa Fe is already there for its own reasons, New Mexicans say a shocking number of U.S. citizens have no idea that New Mexico is a state, a frustration borne out by the words "New Mexico, U.S.A." on their license plates. My relatives have even been asked for passports in Idaho." (Editor's note: This is still true. The state's tourism magazine devotes its last page every month to reader's stories about this, a feature called "One of Our Fifty is Missing." Past items have included weather maps showing Texas next to Arizona and the Governor of New Mexico having his taxes sent back by the IRS with a note saying that foreign nationals don't need to pay taxes. Another example: when I tell people that I went to school in New Mexico, I am frequently asked if my classes were taught in Spanish.)
  • Roswell, New Mexico: Desperately seeking aliens (July 1996) - "Two UFO Museums and an old newspaper cliping may be as close as an eager visitor gets to a close encounter." Story and photos by Joseph Falco. (Cyberwest Magazine)
  • New Mexico's Trinity Site: A pocket full of Trinitite (May 1996) - "A visit to the site where the first atomic bomb was detonated, combines the severe gravity of history with one of the West's loneliest and most historically significant outposts." Story and photos by Joseph Falco. (Cyberwest Magazine)
  • The only mountain biker in Red River, New Mexico: Biking Old Red River Pass and 4th of July Canyon (Sept. 1997) - Story and photos by David Iler. (Cyberwest Magazine)

  • Strange but true Southwest (September 1993) - by Paul McGinnis. "Your Guide to the Weird Sights of Arizona and New Mexico"
