There is one Southwest state I have not traveled to, and I have been trying to work out a trip there for several years. It seems something always gets in the way of my getting to New Mexico.
Finally, I found a nine day window in October and bought airline tickets We're going. Now I'm trying to get the time to plan the itinerary.
I really wanted to get to Carlsbad Caverns, but there is so much to see and do in the northern half of the state, and it's just too far south to do in less than three days. So I think I will eliminate this national park from the list, much as I love national parks.
We will fly to Albuquerque and rent a car. We'll concentrate on Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Taos, and areas surrounding them.
Any "must see" suggestions from those of you who have traveled there?
