New Mexico is often discussed in terms of contrast, comparing its ancient Chaco Canyon Culture to recent 20th century nuclear bomb development. Another distinctive difference in this Land of Enchantment is a wide variety of landforms and topography. From its snowcapped Sangre de Cristo Mountains in the north, ice caves and volcanic mountains which stretch across the state, to the white sand deserts to the south, New Mexico offers an exciting medley of scenic wonders.
