More About This episode

Georgia O'Keeffe once said, "If you ever go to New Mexico, it will itch you for the rest of your life," and this aerial tour of the state will show you exactly why. Take flight over 121,000 square miles of timeless beauty and national treasures, from the Rio Grande, to adobe structures and dormant volcanoes. See what brought O'Keeffe to the Land of Enchantment, as well as Billy the Kid, the makers of the atomic bomb and perhaps even visitors from far away galaxies.
