By this time next month, most of the green trees in northern New Mexico will be turning yellow, orange and red.

The combination of the fall foliage, wildlife and breathtaking scenery is why National Geographic named the Enchanted Circle as one of the top-10 best fall trips in the world.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Enchanted Circle, it's the 83-mile loop starting from Taos and heading north on NM Highway 522 to Questa. From there, go east on NM Highway 38 to Red River, Eagle Nest and Angel Fire. Then take Highway 64 back to Taos.

From the view, it's easy to see why it's so enchanting.

Visitors from as far away as South Dakota who we talked to know how beautiful the state is, but after hearing about National Geographic recognizing New Mexico, say they'll be sure to come back soon.
