7 interesting road-trip stops in the southwestern US not to miss
The Lightning Field (Catron County, New Mexico)
An art installation by sculptor Walter De Maria, The Lightning Field is a one-mile by one-kilometer array of 400 stainless-steel poles in the high desert of New Mexico. The poles are between 15 feet and 26 ¾ feet and are spaced 220 feet apart. As it’s only open six months per year, visitors must make advanced arrangements for an overnight stay in the on-site cabin in order to see the land artwork. Some visitors may be lucky enough to witness lightning strike the installation, while others may only see the scorched earth near the poles where lightning has struck before.
