New Mexico

From the postcard collection
The truth about writing this blog is that not all states come with a story attached. New Mexico is one such state.

I cruised through New Mexico while attempting to move to Los Angeles in the summer of 2003. The state's terrain was a mix of red and brown earth, which made for some interesting driving. For long stretches, signs aiming to lure drivers into gift shops to buy blankets and other southwestern-themed memorabilia were the only things that broke up the scenery. I don't have many regrets in life, but one of them is not taking the time to photograph the gift shop billboard that simply read "We are Nice Indians." However, I did get some fun shots from one of the cheesy gift shops.

I hope to give New Mexico a thorough exploration someday. Roswell and White Sands National Monument top my list. For now, the blanket I bought from those nice Indians serves as my only takeaway form the state.

It is a large 3D printer, good high quality, closed and at a extremely good price. This makes it perfect for working with children around (in truth, it's the one I usually advocate when requested by colleges and institutes for a 3D printer.
