There are no passengers on Spaceship Earth. We are all crew.
Santa Fe, New Mexico (PRWEB) December 15, 2011
Take an adventure this Winter with Seven Directions Tours on their newest addition, "Trough Millennia into the Future" custom tour. Travelers will experience the Spaceport America, 19th century military forts, the artsy town of Marfa, in Texas, walks through white sands dunes and thousand year old petroglyphs, with a learning experience at the National Solar Observatory. Local wine tasting and spicy regional food are all part of the adventure.
The idea of a tour that takes through thousands of years’ cultures, nature’s most surprising wonders, unheard of technology achievements, and cutting edge contemporary art, through a region that offers warm temperatures even during the winter season, is recommended by Seven Directions Tours for the coming months.
Guided by an expert, the itinerary begins and ends in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Organized for small groups, this exciting journey starts with a visit to Spaceport America which will soon offer the ultimate tourism adventure into space, and return! The contrast between this amazing technological achievement and the historical background of the place where it is located is astounding. The 1600 mile long Camino Real de Tierra Adentro (the Royal Road of the Interior), also nicknamed the first American Superhighway, runs along Spaceport America and is part of the United States National Historical Trails system. The first Conquistadores came to New Mexico along the Camino Real with the Oñate expedition in 1598, 22 years before the Mayflower landed at Plymouth Rock.
A variety of gratifying surprises are scheduled along the way and a taste of the real spicy food in Las Cruces’ nearby La Mesilla will warm up the evening.
Two days in the extraordinary town of Marfa, Texas, allows discovering the most unusual art space in the world. The whole town is dedicated to minimalist and contemporary art, with some interesting exceptions and oddities, such as the Prada boutique-installation. Marfa preserves the historic architecture and the atmosphere of the times when Elisabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson, and James Dean were playing their dramatic characters in the movie Giant. Marfa is located in the Chihuahuan Desert close to the Mexican border, surrounded by a diverse and beautiful landscape. In this small town artist Donald Judd found the tranquility and the spaces he wanted for his art project. The Chinati Foundation now preserves and promotes his project. Around it new creative proposals spring up to create a very unique experience.
Back in New Mexico to enjoy the world’s largest gypsum dune field, White Sands National Monument, the forest surrounding Cloudcroft in the Sacramento Mountains, and the nearby National Solar Observatory for an insight on the relationship between the Sun and the third rock from the Sun, planet Earth. Lastly, a walk through an extensive concentration of rock art dating back to between 900 and 1400 AD.
Only five days long, this tour undoubtedly spans through centuries of historic milestones up to adventures into the future.
