Neverending 64

Under a sky of azure
Where the balmy breezes blow,
Kissed by the golden sunshine is Nuevo Mejico.
Lands of the Montezuma,
With fiery hearts aglow,
Lands of the deeds historic,
Is Nuevo Mejico.

"Oh, Fair New Mexico" is the state song of New Mexico. Officially adopted in 1917, it is written by Elizabeth Garrett, daughter of Pat Garrett. Yeah, that Pat Garrett.
This is US 64 in the very northwest part of the state going towards Shiprock, NM.
