New Mexico

Brief Description:
The New Mexican landscape ranges from wide, rose-colored deserts to broken mesas to high, snow-capped peaks. Despite New Mexico’s arid image, heavily forested mouuntain wildernesses cover a significant portion of the state, especially towards the north. The Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the southernmost part of the Rocky Mountains, run roughly north-south along the east side of the Rio Grande in the rugged, pastoral north. The Southern portion of the state is dominated by the Tularosa Basin and the Sacramento Mountains to the South East.

The climate of New Mexico is generally semi-arid to arid, though there are areas of alpine climates, and its territory is mostly covered by mountains, high plains, and desert. The Great Plains are located in the eastern portion of the state, similar to the Colorado high plains in eastern Colorado.
