2012 Enchanting New Mexico Calendar

The 2012 Enchanting New Mexico Calendar celebrates New Mexico's one hundred years of statehood through the eyes of Western artist and cowboy Ronald Kil. Action-packed, colorful, and historically accurate scenes along the Santa Fe Trail capture the spirit of the Old West and highlight the state's history from the time of the Paleo-Indians to the turn of the twentieth century. Conquistadors, cowboys, Indians, buffalo, wagon trains, longhorns, soldiers, and the arrival of the railroad come vividly to life in image and text. The twelve featured paintings appear in Kil's Santa Fe Trail mural series at the NRA Whittington Center's Frank Brownell Museum of the Southwest in Raton. Historian and award-winning southwestern author Marc Simmons wrote the centennial calendar's introduction. The calendar also notes major holidays, Pueblo feast days, seasonal and time changes, and phases of the moon.
