Pack up the car and enjoy thirty-three drives through some of the most spectacular scenery in New Mexico, where the culture, terrain, and climate are as diverse as the Land of Enchantment itself. This indispensable highway companion maps out short trips for exploring the state's scenic byways and back roads. Join nature writer and photographer Laurence Parent on an adventure that takes you from the dunes at White Sands National Monument to the lush forests of the Sacramento Mountains to the rugged waters of the Pecos River. Inside you'll find: individual itineraries from 7 to 118 miles in length; in-depth descriptions of drive highlights, including alpine villages, historic districts, ancient Indian dwellings, missions, and mining towns; a route map for each drive; historical information and suggested side trips; and tips on camping and fishing, travel services, and best driving seasons.
