SAN MIGUEL CHURCH
NEW MEXICO STATE CAPITOL
Actually, I lied. Our real last stop was at the State Capitol, kind of. We were just curious so we took a quick look from afar and it was an easy spot to request our hotel shuttle to come get us.
WORLD'S LARGEST PISTACHIO
WHITE SANDS NATIONAL MONUMENT
We found this place via Pinterest and fell in love and decided we had to incorporate it into our trip. Basically, there used to be some giant gypsum crystals that eroded into a soft white sand and that's why this place exists. One of the park rangers explained that the more mature dunes have vegetation on them and the younger dunes are clean and white.
LAS CRUCES AIRBNB
We booked this awesome little shipping container apartment for the night and we loved it. The views outside were amazing and the space itself was gorgeous. It was tiny and decorated in a beautifully simple Scandinavian style. It was comfortable with a well-stocked kitchenette.
