If you’re not already a fan, I run an incredibly successful Facebook page that was originally created to promote this blog.
It is appropriately called “I Love New Mexico” and from October 2011, when it was created with about 200 fans, it’s grown of over 6,400 fans.
The growth isn’t because I’m such a brilliant Facebook strategist.
It’s attributable to the fact that lots of folks do actually LOVE New Mexico.
And they love the images I find, from photos of dive bars south of Las Cruces to the breathtaking majesty of Ghost Ranch and Abiquiu.
I seldom post an image that I don’t get a “like” within seconds. On an average, over 5,000 people view each post. Feels sorta viral. . .
The best thing about the page, though, is that fans send me images of places that I’ve missed in New Mexico. Or places that I really want to see again.
While I’m recovering from my rather major surgery, I plan to spend the summer exploring some of those places. Here are just a few I came up with – I’m sure the list will get longer as consistently warm weather approaches (I gotta say – I’m pretty sick of winter here in Santa Fe).
I’m asking you to give me more ideas.
And of course, there are more: Chope’s for lunch, the Aztec Ruins, Taos Pueblo, swimming at Ute Lake (again and again), The Comet Drive In in Santa Rosa, sitting on the plaza at Mesilla. . .
What’s your absolute favorite place to visit in New Mexico and why? Send me an image , or at the very least, a link to a great image.
