I think I will make it my goal for next year!
About 13 miles from the Pojoaque Plaza to Chimayo. Park in any of the parking areas or where volunteers tell you. Then follow the marked rout that takes you through the Pueblo and keeps you off 503 for a while
. Remember, NO photographs of the Pueblo without permission. They may enforce this and it's their court.
Then stay on the marked route. Route 503 turns north into the Badlands, and nobody is kidding with that name. Beautiful and undeveloped, barrancas, mesas, arroyos, but no people and no water -- it is easy to get confused and lost. On the marked route there should be volunteers with water. But bring your own in case.
Auto traffic can be heavy on 503 at this time, but no one will be speeding. Patrol cars will be everywhere.
Maybe you be will cured of whatever ails you. It hasn't done anything for me yet, but I keep trying.
