Scenic Trips to the Geologic Past

Scenic Trip guide books

Our Scenic Trips is a popular series of publications exploring New Mexico's roadside geology, varied landscapes and climates, and cultural and economic histories. From border to border, New Mexico is truly the "Land of Enchantment"—deserts, mountains, extinct volcanoes, mining towns, Indian pueblos, and frontier forts—each with a story to tell. This series is full of interesting descriptions of scenic features and natural resources. Most of these handbooks take the reader on guided tours of selected areas via detailed road logs with maps, color photos, and commentary on cultural history, landscape, recreation, wildlife, and vegetation.

Scenic Trip 18 and 19 are complete revisions of earlier versions of these books that are redesigned with color images throughout. Future additions to the scenic trip series will be in this new format.

Some publications, including those that are out-of-print, are only available for purchase on CD or DVD-ROM CD icon.
