The Northeast Region is where you can visit Capulín Volcano National Monument, which is an extinct volcanic cone which has not been active for over ten thousand years. Also in the Northeast Region you can visit many popular cities such as Angel Fire, Capulín, Cimarron, Clayton, Des Moines, Folsom, Las Vegas, Logan, Mosquero, Raton, Santa Rosa, Solano, and Tucumcari.

The two major rivers of the Rio Grance and Pecos River run straight down the middle of New Mexico and offer tons of fun activities for everyone, like white water rafting, fishing, boating, kayaking, water skiing, and more.
New Mexico also offers 3 national parks and over 30 state parks. The City of Rocks State Park was formed of volcanic ash more than thirty million years ago and were moved and sculpted by wind and water to form into monolithic blocks. The Rio Grande Nature Center State Park is a true natural beauty located in Albuquerque. This state park has a trail system along the river and the center offers naturalist-led hikes, bosque exploration, exhibits, interactive activities, teacher workshops, seasonal classes, and special events for everybody.
