Is New Mexico The American Tibet?

Above all the states I’ve visited New Mexico feels like the American Tibet. Details in New-Mexico-American-Tibet-Bob Davis Podcast 995.

Not Really Tibet But…

Firstly I am not suggesting at all that a US State would actually BE Tibet.

Lots Of Travel

However I’ve traveled a lot.

Secondly I never spent too much time in The Land Of Enchantment.

The Land of Enchantment For Sure

Certainly now I have begun to understand why New Mexico owns that motto.

Mountains

For example the Manzano mountains. Not the first thing you’d think of when you consider New Mexico.

Sunsets

On the other hand driving through these mountains and sunset was a mind blowing experience,

History

In addition maybe it’s the history in the state going way back.

Unique Experiences

But if the middle part of the state isn’t your thing there are other unique experiences waiting.

Albuquerque

I mention it but then, there’s Breaking Bad. So…

Roswell and Taos

Of course Las Cruces, Roswell, Santa Fe, and Taos.

Heading North and West

To clarify I took 285 North out of Roswell. connected up with 60 West, then to 41 North.

Hey Wait! This Is Like…American Tibet!

After riding along these US and State Highways I started to come to the conclusion New Mexico has a sort of Tibet like quality.

Vistas

For instance wind swept vistas at any time of the day. And the most mysterious of all, White Sands.

National Forests

During this part of the trip I ended up in national forest campgrounds in the Cibola, all the way up to the northern part of the state in the Carson National Forest. Not to mention some of the best Bureau Of Land Management sites I’ve seen anywhere.

Amazing.

Travel’s Real Value

Finally I’ve certainly talked about the value of travel.

Wander Without A Schedule

And yes, sometimes it feels spiritual. Especially when you can wander without a schedule.

In the same vein it’s the wandering.

Forget The Gotta Haves Just Go

Moreover the wandering without worrying about getting somewhere or the ‘gotta haves’ in life.

Happy Accidents

In conclusion sometimes those happy accidents make all the difference in the world.

To sum up I have never been to Tibet.

Meditation

However the wind, mountains, sunsets and the solitary nature of my own personal travel plans brought the Land of Enchantment up a notch in my mind.

Vast Distances and Views

Most importantly remember New Mexico travelers are dealing with vast distances. In addition a long history.

Overall a very different experience.
