Welcome to Northwest New Mexico!

The northwest of New Mexico is home to several state parks and national recreation areas, giving it a reputation as an outdoor enthusiast's haven. Fishing is especially popular on the San Juan and La Plata rivers, as well as at Morgan Lake, a body of water on the Navajo Reservation that requires anglers to purchase a special permit. The Aztec Ruins National Monument brings Pueblo Indian culture to the fore through exhibits and displays aimed at educating the public. Visitors to the area can also ride the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad on a vintage train that departs from Chama and winds through the San Juan Mountains, crossing the Colorado-New Mexico border 11 times. Farmington is one of the larger centers in Northwest New Mexico, offering a host of accommodations, restaurants, shops and other services. American Indian influence is evidenced throughout the region, from town names to the ubiquitous arts and crafts shops.
