Alamogordo, NM: a Big Nut & a Dead Chimp

In October of 2017, my mom and I took a road trip through central New Mexico. The third stop on our road trip was Alamogordo, New Mexico.

No road trip is complete without seeing the world’s largest something. In central New Mexico, the large attraction that you can’t miss is the world’s largest pistachio at PitsachioLand.

Roswell, NM: a Trip to Alien Country

In October of 2017 my mom and I took a road trip through central New Mexico. Our main destination was Roswell, New Mexico, home of the infamous UFO incident on 1947.

I’ve been reading about Roswell and the UFO incident since I was a child. I was often drawn to the strange, esoteric, and extraterrestrial. This was a destination I always wanted to visit but never thought I’d get the chance. I never traveled very often, and New Mexico just wasn’t in the plans.

Then my mom moved to New Mexico in 2016. She had lived in the state for over a year before but had never ventured this far east. Our trip gave her a chance to explore her new state. How lucky for me!

Here’ what we saw:
