The Rio Grande is New Mexico's longest river and runs the entire length of New Mexico.

The world's first Atomic Bomb was detonated on July 16, 1945 on the White Sands Testing Range near Alamogordo.

New Mexico has far more sheep and cattle than people. There are only about 12 people per square mile.

Since New Mexico's climate is so dry 3/ 4 of the roads are left unpaved. The roads don't wash away.

Native Americans have been living in New Mexico for some twenty thousand years. The Pueblo, Apache, Comanche, Navajo, and Ute peoples were in the New Mexico region when Spanish settlers arrived in the 1600s.
