If you haven't made up your mind on what to do this Memorial Day Week-End and just wanna getaway from the city, may I suggest a place my wife Rosie and I discovered a few months ago. Living in the southwest, I had heard about the  wonders of the  Hot Springs in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico.  Only about an hour and 45 minute drive from El Paso, and closer than Ruidoso from here, there is a place called The Riverbend Hot Springs, (See Video). There, you can soak your tired muscles in the hot, rich mineral water that helps with arthritis pain, muscle spasms, and according to local urban legend, can even cure baldness..!!
