HOSPITALIST CAREERS IN NEW MEXICO
The Land of Enchantment
New Mexico, billed as the 'land of enchantment', is a geological wonderland featuring everything from the high Rocky Mountain ranges of the north, the Chihuahuan Desert in the south, the great plains in the east, the spectacular canyons of the west and, cutting right through the center, the Rio Grande, a river much revered in a state were water is sacred. Combined with a bright blue sky, a rich heritage of ancient Native American culture and Hispanic occupation, New Mexico makes up a fascinating and colorful mosaic that quite understandably draws thousands of visitors looking for a destination that brings surprises at every turn, and reveals hidden treasures behind every mysterious rock formation.
Today the dual Spanish and Indian heritage provides for some fascinating historic attractions in the State, and the 'living museums' of the pueblos welcome visitors. The state was home, too, to some of the most legendary mountain men and notorious cowboys, like Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, not to mention cattle barons like John Chisum who grew rich rounding up longhorns on the southeastern plains. From cowboys to alien space ships is a big leap, but one New Mexico makes with ease in the town of Roswell in the southeast, where UFO enthusiasts flock to investigate the famed 'Roswell Incident'.
Aside from its historic and physical attractions New Mexico has the special appeal of being caught in a time warp. A laid-back attitude prevails even in the cities, and the pace is as slow and languid as the ascent of the myriad of colorful hot-air balloons that fill the skies over the city of Albuquerque in the world-famous annual festival.
The summer months from May to October are the warmest, but also the wettest. July and August receive the most rainfall, about 30 to 40 percent of the annual total, which occurs mostly during brief thunderstorms. During the height of summer the temperature averages 90°F (32°C), with cooler temperatures at higher altitudes. January is the coldest month with average temperatures ranging from 55°F (13°C) in the central and southern valleys to 35°F (2°C) at higher elevations. - iexplore.com
