Road trip: New Mexico is awesome

New Mexico is our neighbor, and for whatever reason it can often be forgotten as a great place to enjoy a long, or short, road trip.

Yahoo! Travel takes a look at the Land of Enchantment and what it has to offer. And it's a lot. From Santa Fe to Wheeler Peak and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

Plus, it's also the setting to perhaps the greatest television show in American history in Breaking Bad. There are a few sites around Albuquerque that visitors can check out. All in all it's a pretty cool place to visit. I spent three days camping out in the Sangre de Cristos a few years ago and it was a great experience.

Travel writer Taryn Adler takes us through a 5-day road trip through the state that includes a few spots many visitors don't consider, and at least one that maybe they shouldn't consider, at least for sleeping.
