This enchanting land reminds all who traverse here that the Old West is alive: It's a place where frontier is not a historical term. A trip through the serene wilderness of southwestern New Mexico starts in the quirky town of Truth or Consequences, winds and twists westward through the mountains to Silver City, then loops south and east to Deming and Las Cruces. By the time this rustic journey concludes, visitors to the Land of Enchantment return to civilization with a renewed sense of country, culture, and self.
