Alien Rose Parade Float Wins Prize

From :

"The State Tourism Department of New Mexico has just won the award for 'excellence in creative concept and design' from the Pasadena Rose Parade’s Grand Marshal. The entry, titled 'Passport To Our World and Beyond' was designed to draw more tourists to the state.

It’s sort of unfortunate that New Mexico still needs to capitalize on the Roswell Incident to get people to visit. The rest of the state is incredible enough. If you’ve ever been to a ceremonial dance at one of the Indian pueblos in the middle of the winter, skiied at Taos Valley, camped in the redrock canyons of Gila National Forest, or had a heavenly bowl of Hatch red chili you’ll know what I mean."



I've done 3 of the 4 things you've mentioned. I love NM. There are a few strange people, but aren't they everywhere?

Best things about NM:

Carlsbad Caverns
Chaco Canyon
Pine Trees
Mountain Cactus
Mexican Food
Not having to live there!!!

BTW, considering the fact that my madre was "born"? in Roswell, those aliens on the float are probably my relatives!!!
