Enthusiastic New Mexican!
Marcus, originally from El Paso, should be employed by the New México Tourism Bureau. We have met many lovely people here but none as enthusiastic about the state as he. As a kid in Texas he spent a great deal of time in New Mexico, loved it and moved here permanently when he was 18-years-old. He approached us when he saw us walking the grounds of the original site of the private Boys Ranch School in Los Alamos, which was closed in 1943 to become the top secret city for research to develop the atomic bomb. When Marcus noticed our 19-year-old grandson with us, he gave us numerous suggestions that Dom would like. In rapid fire succession he named hiking places, natural attractions, fishing sites, and other areas that he obviously loved himself. If I lived here, I would be sure to count him among my friends.
