The Gypsum Dunefield
The White Sands National Park in Southern New Mexico is the world’s largest gypsum dunefield and still grows…
The Carlsbad Caverns N.P. is like a magical fairyland hidden 750 feet (228 meters) underground. Absolutely worth visiting, however due to Covid, reservations are required in advance.
No Country for Old Men
Staying at the Regal Inn Motel from ‘No Country for Old Men’ (a 2007 neo-Western by the Coen Brothers), which is one of Domi’s favorite movies. It actually hasn’t changed that much since then…
Regards from Las Vegas, New Mexico!
