This excellent boulder is a hidden gem! It would be quite popular if it were located at Dynamite Shacks or some other roadside boulder destination. The name comes from the distinctive shape on the east face of this boulder that somewhat resembles the image on the New Mexico flag. It is also worth noting that this boulder is quite close to the Holy Cross area and could possibly be considered part of that.
From the Indian Garden boulders, continue up the wash for about 0.25 miles until you come to a large boulder immediately on the left side of the creekbed (if you are looking upstream). If you look uphill and to the left, you should be able to see a strange, mushroom-shaped rock about fifty or sixty feet above you. Hike to that boulder. Once there, the New Mexico Boulder is only another couple hundred feet. Look for the distinctive sun shape on its northern face (see beta photos).
