Believe it or not, this beautiful scene of dense aspens and blooming wildflowers is located only a few hours outside of Albuquerque, New Mexico. If you never make it out of southern New Mexico, it's easy to believe the entire state is desert. However, just a bit to the north it becomes remarkably lush. The area pictured here is near the Valles Caldera National Preserve, one of only a few "super-volcanoes" in the world. Unlike the desert to the south, the ashy soil here is quite fertile, and the landscape refreshingly green.
