      Arlo Hemphill recommended White Sands National Monument Primitive Campsites
      A rolling sea of sugar white sand encased in a Pueblo tapestry of craggy mountain peaks and Martian sunsets. This place is magical. There's nothing else like it. Rare and totally unique species prowl ... read more
      the cool sand (which doesn't heat up in the New Mexican sun), but mostly it's just endless drifts of what should be snow to the eye, but is not. You're barefoot, in shorts and completely comfortable. There is a deep spirituality available at this spot and whether that appeals to you or not, it is still a fascinating place for lovers of geology, biology or cultural history. This is the American southwest at its best.

      White Sands isn't exactly "near" the caverns by east coast standards, but for the long hauls typical of western adventures, it's just over the hills away! They have a number of first come first serve primitive camp spots right on the snow white dunes. If I were anywhere in the State and wanted to camp the night, I'd try to make it here. It's an amazing spot.

      Baxter Jackson recommended International UFO Museum & Research Center
      If you're a fan of Mulder and Scully (and you are if you know who I'm talking about), then you've got to go seek the truth about what really happened in Roswell, New Mexico in 1945. The International ... read more
      UFO Museum & Research Center will leave little doubt that we are not alone. Of especial interest are the newspaper clippings from the local newspaper at the time of the infamous incident.

      Since you're going to be close to Roswell anyway, you might as well pop into the International UFO Museum & Research Center to make the theme 'Cowboys & Aliens' complete :-)

      I've been through there and would recommend this website:

      It's a comprehensive and easy guide to follow in Billy the Kid's footsteps.
