This will be part of a road trip from El Paso to Albuquerque. The plan is to do El Paso, then ???, then Amarillo, Santa Fe and Albuquerque. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to see and what to skip? I was originally going to just do Albuquerque and Santa Fe, but suspect El Paso and Amarillo are worthwhile.
Based on my research it seems like I should go from El Paso to Las Cruces to Roswell. But then from Roswell to Amarillo I can either go through Clovis or Lubbock. A few extra hours on the road is not a big deal, it is more a matter of seeing more interesting attractions and scenery.
I am from Los Angeles and have never been to New Mexico or West Texas. Within Texas have only been to San Antonio, Austin, and small towns in the hill country.
Any suggestions, feedback, or other info on attractions/cities along the way is greatly appreciated!
