Travel Article - National Park Getaways
It was my maiden expedition from Michigan to New Mexico, visiting my parents, who were “snow-birding” in Alamogordo. I had never seen the southwestern United States and had always been a fan of eco-tourism. With all of its natural attractions, New Mexico seemed like a wonderful place to spend my seven days of spring vacation. Standing at the cluster of mailboxes at the end of my parents’ street, I could see a thin strip of white nestled at the foot of the San Andres Mountains.
