Southwestern New Mexico is a trove of diversity, from the scenery, to the people, cultures, to the food.  It is known for its green chile and acres of pecan groves.

The Rio Grande flows through the fertile Mesilla Valley.  The vast Gila National Forest is great for hiking and camping and backpacking. New Mexico's largest lake, Elephant Butte, begins at the hot springs haven of Truth or Consequences. The Bosque del Apache Wildlife Refuge near Socorro provides a haven for countless species of birds. On the Plains of San Augustin, you will come across the array of giant, gleaming, white radio antennae that are part of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory.
