New Mexico is called the Land of Enchantment for good reason. Culturally, the state is a melting pot of Native American, Anglo and Hispanic cultures. The natural landscapes are equally diverse – everything from subterranean caverns and vast sand dunes to aspen-covered slopes and snow-capped mountain peaks.
