Northwest New Mexico

4.4
Home to wide-open spaces dotted with ancient sites and modern settlements, Northwest New Mexico boasts rich and diverse cultural legacies shaped by Native Americans. Aptly dubbed Indian Country, the region boasts the largest Navajo reservation in the U.S. For a fill of culture, tour the ruins of ancient Puebloan tribes. The more adventurous types can hike and mountain-bike through red canyons and sandstone cliffs or free camp in desert badlands. Built by traders, soldiers, and prospectors of the early 19th century, Farmington remains the area's largest town and industry center, while Gallup is a gateway to Navajo Reservation and a shopping hub for Native American art and jewelry. Whatever you choose to do on your Northwest New Mexico trip, be sure to set your watch "on Indian time." Northwest New Mexico is in New Mexico.
