New Mexico is so much more than chile or the Balloon Fiesta. It is art, Hispanic traditions, turquoise, Native American history, cowboys, museums, and adventure. This is one person’s bucket list. It is a place to start on your own bucket list in New Mexico. Because this is a hi-tech world, many of the items have a website to get more information for your own adventure. You can even fill out your own 100 places to see in New Mexico. Enjoy New Mexico! It is like coming to another world.

New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez: "I look forward to completing the entire bucket list."

The Independent: "Awalt's latest takes both visitors to the state as well as long-time New Mexicans on a tour of 100 things that make New Mexico what it is." June 6, 2015
