"... in the face of rising fuel costs, New Mexicans should consider staying closer to home and exploring the mountains, lakes, festivals and Pueblo dances in this state.

"Governor Richardson and First Lady Barbara Richardson will be in Cape Cod for the holiday weekend. They will also spend time with the First Lady’s family in the area. They will return early next week."
