Where To Go

 In Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, United States of America

It was the last week of my mum’s stay here in the States and I want to show her around one last time. I glanced into the US map and questioned myself, Where To Go this time. Since I’ve explored most of the eastern states and my aim for now is to visit all the states in the country, then I have decided to go to New Mexico and Colorado since they are closer to my new home location of Texas.

It took me a couple of weeks to come up with the plan that includes hotel to stay, tourist attractions to visit, and route to follow. Since I called myself a nature lover, I made sure to choose the attractions that will showcase its beauty. This was the itinerary I set for this trip:

1. Carlsbad Caverns National Park, NM

Carlsbad Caverns National Park is located in the Guadalupe Mountains of southeastern New Mexico

2. White Sands National Monument Park, NM

White Sands National Monument is on the north side of Route 70 about 16 miles southwest of Alamogordo.

3. Sandia Peak Tramway, NM

9. The Helium Time Columns, TX

The itinerary was planned to make sure to get the most of the trip. Driving from Texas to New Mexico to Colorado and back to Texas. The travel time was calculated per Google Maps GPS. So that made me decide where to go on my next adventure. Next posting will be my adventure in the Land of Enchantment.
