Soundtrack for Trip #4: New Mexico and Colorado

imgresThere is something so incredibly peaceful as you travel through the magnificent and unique landscapes of New Mexico and Colorado. These states share a natural spirituality but each is vastly different. Just like John Denver’s “Rocky Mountain High” and The Champs “Tequila!” The painted desert of New Mexico is vibrant and almost otherworldly. Home to many Native American Indian tribes, it is also known as home to some “Weird Science” like the Manhattan Project-the super secret location for the development of the atomic bomb. Where New Mexico is hot and spicy with a southwestern flavor, Colorado is earthy and tranquil. The Rocky mountains serve as a dramatic backdrop to the beautiful places where both modern day cowboys and Native Americans each call home.

Here’s a small smorgasbord of the music that we sang along to as we hit the winding roads through the Rocky Mountains and the flat desolate stretches of the New Mexican desert.We think their fun, funky, and fantastic. Give em a spin and add and subtract to make this list your own!
