Kayaking the Rio Grande is a most enjoyable activity and a great way to see the fall colors.

It is time to get out the sweaters, (nights are already beginning to get a nip in the air), do some star-gazing, fall hiking and festival-going.

What better time of year to get out and enjoy New Mexico than in the fall? The chiles are ripe, the farmers markets are in full swing, festivals and events are abundant throughout the state, the aspens are turning and the weather is perfect with big deep blue skies. And let’s not forget that ski season does technically open in the fall as well!

Fresh chiles are available in most parts of the state from roadside stands to supermarket parking lots to farmers markets, take your pick red or green and buy enough to freeze and last the winter.

A drive through northern New Mexico will offer the beauty of fall in New Mexico with the turning of the aspens if you drive high enough.  Trails, hiking and nature walks are activities that will offer great views and a quiet commune with nature to soothe the soul.

Balloon Fiesta is just around the corner is is one New Mexico’s most popular annual fall events.

Whatever your favorite activities, it is time to celebrate and ring in the fall season in New Mexico!
