It is late summer here in New Mexico and the end of August ushers in the nip of pre-fall nights with temperatures dropping a little lower each week. We have been having monsoon (or rainy season) since late June and though it normally tapers off around the first of September, I am told that due to el Nino this year it may carry on into October. The days are crisp though with the last of the wildflowers blooming and herbs ready for the harvest. Chiles are roasting all over the state and the air is mouth-watering this time of year. It’s a good feel and late August, early September, is a great time to be in New Mexico (but any time is a great time to be in New Mexico!) Sunsets are spectacular this time of year.
Many of the state’s finest events are coming up in the next month or two so be sure to check our articles area for updates and information. Chile festivals, the New Mexico State Fair, The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, the Fiesta of Zozobra, the Santa Fe Wine and Chile Fiesta, Aspencade, and many more.
There is so much to New Mexico and as the publisher and editor of Discover New Mexico, it is my goal to share as much as possible with you. It is also my intention to bring in a more personal touch to our site in hopes to more clearly share the passion that I have for this amazingly unique state that I am fortunate enough to call home.
Until next time, it’s time for an evening coffee in the cool mountain air of southern New Mexico.
