land of enchantment

The 2010 color for the state of New Mexico is turquoise and I must say, it's about time! The color contains significant meaning for the Pueblo People- it is most commonly associated with the sky and is used as offerings in various religious circumstances. Below are a few photos, some of which I snapped and some I found, that show the powerful color that can be seen throughout the state.
