The lush Botanic Garden, which encompasses 36 acres, and a 10,000 square foot glass conservatory is an oasis in the New Mexico desert. The Aquarium takes visitors on a journey down the Rio Grande from Albuquerque to its mouth at the Gulf of Mexico. The New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science is also home to the Lode Star Astronomy Centre.
The views are spectacular from the Sandia Peak Aerial Tram and the Plaza to Plaza Walking Tour that takes you from Albuquerque’s original Plaza in Old Town to the new Plaza in the contemporary section of downtown. You also have the option to take a drive on the Turquoise Trail National Scenic Byway which takes you out into the byways and backroads around Albuquerque.

Thriving under the Spanish, Native American, Mexican, Territorial government, American Confederates (one wonders how the struggle for independence by the South got so farafield) and ultimately Union rule, it took over three hundred years for the city to emerge as the oldest state capital in the United States.
The Plaza, in the centre of town, once filled with traders and wagon trains, is now home to art galleries, sophisticated restaurants and unique shops. Original Spanish architecture from the 1600's surrounds the central square, including the oldest continuously occupied public building in the nation.

Founded by the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad in 1880, Durango was once a young city surrounded by silver mining towns and the wild, wild west. Today the railroad still passes through, even though the mining towns have turned to ghost towns. Durango has settled in as a carefully preserved National Historic Landmark, like no other in America.

In 1908, President Theodore Roosevelt established Natural Bridges National Monument, creating Utah’s first National Park Service affiliate. When the park was expanded to protect nearby Puebloan structures, the General Land Office assigned the Hopi names of Sipapu, (place of emergence), Kachina (reflecting the rock art on the bridge) and Owachomo (rock mound). A nine-mile scenic loop starting and ending near the Natural Bridges Visitor Centre overlooks each of the bridges. A trailhead for each bridge is also located along the drive.
Valley of the Gods is a red dust landscape punctuated with silver-green brush. The valley, lying at the base of a 1,200 foot bluff is called Cedar Mesa. The area’s jagged towers, gravely washes and tortured sandstone formations line the Valley of the Gods Road, a 17-mile dirt route that forms a scenic loop. Each bend in the road reveals a surprise, a slightly different shade of red or a new rock contortion, many of which are described in Navajo legend as ancient warriors frozen in time.
The Hovenweep National Monument protects six Puebloan-era villages spread out over a 20-mile expanse of mesas and canyons on the Utah-Colorado border. The Square Tower Group, with multistoried towers perched on canyon rims and balanced on boulders, serves as the primary contact facility with a Visitor Centre and Interpretive Trail. Take time to explore and marvel at the skill of these ancient builders.
