The state of New Mexico is located in the south-western region of the United States of America. It is bordered by Oklahoma, Texas, and the country of Mexico. The state capital of New Mexico is Santa Fe. In its northwestern corner New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, and Utah meet at right angles, forming the Four Corners region. Adding Nevada to these four states creates the ‘grand circle’, an area of the U.S. known for the largest concentration in the country of national parks, monuments, and scenic byways.
New Mexico’s economy is largely based on its mineral wealth. It is a leading producer of uranium ore, manganese ore, potash, salt, perlite, copper ore, natural gas, beryllium, and tin concentrates. Other sectors include government services, and trade. Manufactured goods in the New Mexico are food products, machinery, apparel, transportation equipment, electronics and semi-conductors. The state’s major crops are hay, onions, chilies, green house plants, pecans, and cotton. Top employers with office space or other facilities in New Mexico include Mesa Air, Intel, U.S. National Park Service, and Pepsi.
Entertainment And Dining Out
New Mexico is a popular tourist destination due to its historic monuments and national parks, including Carlsbad Caverns, White Sands, Shiprock in Navajo country, and the striking cliff dwellings and Pueblo settlements at Bandelier National Monument. Other attractions include Santa Fe, Acoma Pueblo, the Taos Art Colony, and Taos Ski Valley. New Mexico offers a distinctive regional cuisine that is characterized by the use of Chili peppers. New Mexico chilies aren’t as hot as many other types of peppers. Area specialties include tortillas, and the Native American sopaipilla, a light, puffy fry bread that is often served with honey and butter as a desert, or as an entree with meat, cheese and beans.
Albuquerque is the state’s principle airport, Santa Fe and other minor cities such as Carlsbad, Farmington, Roswell, and Hobbs, have commuter air service. If you are visiting the south-western region of the state you may want to fly into El Paso, Texas. Interstate Highways 25 and 40 cross New Mexico and meet in the middle of the state in Albuquerque. Greyhound buses are a way of getting from city to city if you do not own a private vehicle.
