Sara Reyes | New Mexico Aventures…
Uncategorized / May 30, 2009

I’m on vacation in New Mexico, visiting a place I’ve only flown over before because it’s fun to see what’s actually on the ground. The United States is so big and diverse it’s an adventure to see different corners and crannies. This time we choose New Mexico. It’s within driving distance, has cool old places and it’s affordable. Our base of operations is the historic Plaza Hotel in Las Vegas, New Mexico. You’ll recognize it if you watched No Country for Old Men. It’s where Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) gets shot up and Carson Wells (Woody Harrelson) dies. Yup, we’re doing a reenactment with our travel buddy Peaches. We’ve also visited several forts, one very sad, Fort Sumner with the Bosque Redondo Monument. Two claims to fame: killing of Billy the Kid and the internment of thousands of Navajo and Mescalero Apache peoples during the Civil War. The fort is gone but digs have uncovered some of its sad history. The second, Fort Union was the service and logistics headquarters for the New Mexico territory and served as an important stop on the Santa Fe Trail until the railroad put it out of business. It’s a beautiful if desolate place…
