Originally settled by the Puebloan people, descendants of ancient Anasazi from all across the Southwest United States, in nineteen unique pueblos located up and down the Rio Grande river valley, Central New Mexico is an oasis in a vast painted desert. The Rio Grande river is hugged closely on both sides by the largest cottonwood forest in the world, called the "bosque", whose foliage changes during the Autumn rival that of the Appalachian Mountains and whose biodiversity is the precious jewel of the Southwest. Geographically speaking, there is nothing in the world to rival this place. It has captivated the minds and hearts of conquistadores, explorers, settlers, intellectuals, artists and many of history's most influential people. Pilgrimages have been made to the so-called "Land of Enchantment" from all parts of the globe and lives have been changed forever for the better by the warm embrace of this heavenly garden of the gods.
