In January we went to Las Cruces, New Mexico for a few days to check out the area.
Great scenery: Big sky, big desert, big mountains.
Population of Las Cruces is about 80,000. The city is sprawled out in a big valley.
The Winter was unusually cold this year, and there was even snow for the first time in years. It melted quickly though once the sun came out.
Winter in the desert.
