Article: Finding the Heartbeat of America’s Next National Monument

Cornudas Mountain

“I used to think that there was something magical about Otero Mesa, but now I know better. Otero Mesa is just simply—wild. This land of rolling hills, undulating black grama grass, and endless sky embodies the intoxicating spirit of freedom. It is a land that speaks to the soul, and it is a land that deserves to be permanently protected.”

Posted below is an article about Otero Mesa National Monument, written by Nathan Newcomer for the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance’s Summer 2010 Newsletter. Read on for further insight into the benefits of National Monument designation, the unique resources that characterize Otero Mesa, and a personal history of the journey to protect Otero Mesa.
