Catch a ¡Colores! double feature exploring New Mexican culture.


Sleeping Monsters, Sacred Fires: Volcanoes of New Mexico - Look in any direction in New Mexico and you can find mountains that have blown their tops, rare maar volcanoes, cinder cones, lava flows and our very own super volcanoes. New Mexicos volcanoes have been decorating New Mexicos landscape for millions of years. In this COLORES! we see and learn about breathtaking examples of volcanism that span the state. But volcanoes have created more than stunning terrain. Over time, they planted the seeds of civilization and shaped the identity of New Mexico and its people. In this documentary we meet Native Americans who share their views of New Mexico's volcanoes and we meet the experts who help us better understand these geological marvels. Experts also consider the big question, when will these sleeping monsters come to life again? Welcome to the volcano state.

High Desert Trout - New Mexico PBS visits with noted fly-fishing expert, Bob Gerding as he unravels the mystique fly-fishing in New Mexico. Bob is joined by author John Nichols who takes us to his favorite fishing holes along the Rio Grande Gorge. Ti Piper, author of Fly-Fishing in New Mexico, describes the spirit behind his search for the wild trout of the Pecos. And, Abe and Tim Chavez guide us along the world famous San Juan River to experience the thrill of fly-fishing for giant rainbow and brown trout.
