North East Region of New Mexico is where the plains meet the
mountains. See Capulín Volcano National Monument, an
extinct volcanic cone (inactive now for 10,000 years) and
you can say you saw the plains of Colorado, Oklahoma, and
Texas. The eastern slopes of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains
that turn into rolling plains here, giving this region its
dramatic landscape. With abundant lakes, this region is a
fisherman's paradise. Boating, hiking and swimming are great
pastimes here too. A number of the lakes in the area,
Conchas, Eagle Nest, Maloya, Maxwell, McAllister, Morphy,
Springer, Storrie and Ute, among others give way to fishing,
water-skiing, canoeing and sailing. Don't miss the Kit
Carson Museum in Cimarron, which gives a good portrayal of
1850s settlement life. In Capulín, visit the Folsom
Museum for evidence of prehistoric man in the region. Stay
at an old time
and dine in
a real saloon.
