N.M.: Want a treat for Valentine’s Day? Visit public lands

Listen to this story

LAS CRUCES, N.M. — If the traditional gifts for Valentine’s Day of flowers, chocolates, stuffed animals and dinner dates are getting a little routine, why not treat your sweetheart to an outdoor excursion to southern New Mexico’s public lands? The Bureau of Land Management has two favorite areas to recommend for that special day, or anytime.

Nestled in the foothills of the Organ Mountains, the Dripping Springs Natural Area and Aguirre Spring Recreational Area and Campground are two sites where the “love for hiking and bird watching” can easily be expressed. A surprise picnic with a special packed lunch or sweet treats could also be enjoyed, as either location are equipped with ramadas and picnic tables.
