Northeast New Mexico
Northeast New Mexico is a region bordering the Texas Panhandle and southern Colorado. It has fewer scenic and cultural attractions than most other regions of the state, but does contain a few things to break the tedium of the drive west across the Great Plains en route to the better-known tourist areas of Santa Fe and north central New Mexico.
