Mogibb1,

Welcome to the Forestry Forum. Sometimes it helps a lot to give us a general location of the specimen.

If virginia pine, the inner tip of the cone scale will have a purple lip, contrasting sharply with the brown color where the seed wing ends.

Since this is a sorta learning exercise, I would have appreciated knowing whether you were looking at the bark, cones, needles, tree structure, etc. 
Learning that you were "knowledgeable" won't help me with future identifications.  :P

Welcome to the Forum, PewaukeeTree.  I used to hate it when my parents would say. "Because I said so!"  lol  Explanations help everybody get smarter.  Anyway, I too am interested in how you deduced that it is a Mexican Pinyon.  Long way from home, isn't it?
My father once said, "This is my son who wanted to grow up and become a doctor.  So far, he's only become a doctor."
