    Five Days

    Hi! As Buck and Michael have already said, you really should be looking at a minimum of five full days for this trip. Forget about the 4-day thing. That would have you trying to keep up a pace of...
  2. US Hwy. 550

    Just wanted to note that US 550 is now a four-lane highway from Bernalillo (north of ABQ) all the way to Bloomfield, NM. Not sure about the last little bit from Bloomfield/Aztec up into Durango.

    Another thing you should know is that vehicle/RV camping isnít allowed at Carlsbad Caverns Ė itís backcountry camping only. The nearest campgrounds are in Whiteís City ( 7 miles away and not very...
  4. Balloon Fiesta & White Sands

    Diana,

    Hi! As DonnaR said, many thousands of people will be visiting Albuquerque for the Balloon Fiesta. If you canít find a decent hotel room in ABQ and already have a place in Santa Fe, you...

    Night 10 -- Amarillo
    Night 11 -- Santa Fe

    Night 13 -- Santa Fe...

    New Mexico

    OK, well, if youíre still in San Antonio, then New Mexico is up next. With the hot weather weíve been having, Iíd say head to mountains where itís a little cooler. So, from San Antonio, that gives...

    Denver - Taos - Santa Fe

    The route Michael described, I-25 from Denver south all the way to Santa Fe, is the certainly the quickest way to get there. But, if you aren't in a hurry, I would suggest going through Taos, NM...

    Santa Fe

    One place your teens might enjoy is El Rancho de las Golondrinas, a living history museum in Santa Fe. They arenít open every day, so be sure to check their hours of operation before you visit.

    Hi, Swain.



    I agree - it would be better if you could take one more half day (or a full day if possible) to make the trip.

    Anyway, if you have any questions about the ABQ area, I’ll be glad...

    Dog-Friendly ABQ

    This is good advice. Albuquerque has grown to the point where rush hour traffic can really be a pain.

    There is a nice, new dog park convenient to the I-25 North Corridor, and plenty of hotels in...

    You could shorten this drive by 80 miles by taking US Hwy. 285 north from Fort Stockton to Roswell, NM, then going west on US. Hwy 70 all the way to Ruidoso.
