Ojo Caliente looks great. Wondering about the remote communities mentioned when on the *high road* to Taos. I'll check out the link. Thanks again!

West to Grants, south to historic church in San Rafael, southwest to Bandera Crater and Ice Cave (short hikes), west to El Morro National Monument (short hike to Anasazi ruins on top), west to Zuni Pueblo, north to Gallup (visit pawn shops and have a nice lunch), east back to Albuquerque (stop at one of the casinos for fun).

Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway, New Mexico




It has been over 15 years since we have done the entire loop...

The most popular day trip in Northern New Mexico is the Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway. Circling Wheeler Peak, this 84-mile trip connects Eagle Nest, Angel Fire, Taos, and Red River. Mt. Wheeler is the tallest mountain in New Mexico, rising to an altitude of 13,161 feet. The drive offers spectacular scenery, rugged back country, mountain trails, camping facilities, streams, lakes and a peek at New Mexico’s history.
