E is for Enchantment #AtoZChallenge @AprilA2Z

New Mexico has a pretty fabulous nickname: Land of Enchantment. Surprisingly, it only became the official nickname in 1999.

What makes the nickname so great is that it encompasses so much of the state's history and landscape. Not only does New Mexico have stunning views (enchanting, perhaps?), but it was inhabited by indigenous peoples for a long time before Europeans explored the New World.

The gorgeous scenery combined with the rich history of many peoples combines to make a truly enchanting place.
