Mountain skies, sunsets, and salsa.
Any attempt to describe what makes the Southern New Mexico experience special would have to include these three elements.
Now salsa ~ the spicy stuff itself as well as all the good things you eat with it ~ we’ve pretty much got that covered in many of the posts you find here.
Southern New Mexico food that tastes terrific ~ it’s what we do.
Yet our mountain skies and sunsets are just as iconic. And some local photographers, better than anyone, know how to capture this drama in their images.
That’s where photographer Xander Century comes in. His photo features the New Mexican mountain sky about an hour before sunset. Xander is crazy about his Southern New Mexico hometown and, in this short interview, tells us why.
LOCAL TRAVEL TIPS, as told by Southern New Mexico Landscape Photographer, Xander Century
Imagine someone is visiting NM for the first time and may never come again. What is the one thing they must do or see while they’re here? Enjoy the beautiful sunsets and hike the mountains which are amazing in this city. There is so much hidden in the mountains that surround the city of Las Cruces ~ hidden caves, valleys, and paths.
