A New Mexico Alphabet (S to V)
S -- S is for Santa Fe. Founded by the Spanish in 1607, Santa Fe is the oldest capital in the United States. And even though some are pressuring for the capital to be moved to Albuquerque (where half of the state's population lives), Santa Fe is likely to continue in her current role in state government.
T -- T is for Tumbleweeds. Tumbleweeds are a particular type of spiky, desert plant that uproot themselves in the spring and roll around. If you can avoid them, do, because their stems can be thick enough to break windshields (just ask our friend).
U -- U is for "Under New Mexico Skies" which is the state's official cowboy song. (Don't laugh, the bolo is also our official tie and is permitted on the floor of the state house and senate.)
V -- V is for Vista. We may be just a bit conceited but we think New Mexico is beautiful as evidenced in that just about everything is vista this or vista that.
