I've said it before. I think the most beautiful sunsets that we've seen in our travels west of the Mississippi have been in New Mexico.
The online comments and reactions began with pintada kid:
"I love taking pics of Sunsets and Sunrises but the Sunsets are very Spectacular and last longer then the Sunrises. My favorite Spot to take pictures is Willard N.M. by the Salt lakes that is the very center of N.M. and the Salt lakes and the Spectacular view of the Mesas and Mountains is breathtaking. Weather Forecasters say that New Mexico has the Most Beautiful Sunsets of anyplace in the World. The Spectacular, Purple, Orange, Red, Yellow and other Colors are Great with the Mesas in the Background."
The last glimpse of sunlight created an entirely different display of colors overhead.
The night before we left Las Cruces, we were presented with this encore sunset for our enjoyment.
