Outside of Mountainair at the Salinas Pueblo Missions are many historical ruins.
Three of them are: Gran Quivira Abo, and Quarai.
I went down to explore these amazing places with a sightseeing group of about 30 other photographers last summer.
Not only did we have the most beautiful day at our disposal during the shoot, but we learned so much about the indigenous people and the historical significance of the area. If you’re a history nut like I am, this is a must see travel stop if you should find your way visiting New Mexico.
