The sun is not the same. That’s the thing we’ve learned with traveling. The sun simply does not hit your shoulders the same city to city. In New Mexico, there’s a dry warmth in the air from the time the sun rises to far past when it sets. This is different than exploring in the usual metropolitan as we needed to lean on our own sense of adventure and curiosity. So we hopped in the car and drove down a road we didn’t know; but with the purple mountains surrounding and the sun just dipping the edges of the skyline, we found it easy to keep entertained just by following the scenery. As the night was ending and we made a quick dash to the side of the road, hopped on a median and watched the sun drop below the mountains – with a camera in hand of course. New Mexico leaves you at ease, there’s a warmth in the city and people. No hype, no flashy lights, just real raw beauty to experience.
