Thought i'd pass along my favorate view in all of New Mexico and that is Haynes Vista along the rim of the Sacramento mountains next to Cloudcroft on Highway 130 about a mile after the turn off goiing to Sunspot. Just inspiring as when you are over looking the Canyon below at about 10,000 ft above and surrounded by pine trees and the smell of pine all around you and looking down you see beautiful White Sands spread out for 100's of square miles then further out is the Organ and San Andreas mountains along the whole horizon. Can't wait to get back down to Alamogordo and get up to Cloudcroft and my beloved Haynes Vista.....

Others may want to pass along their favorate view/vista in our beautiful state....

Harry o: Yes, I've seen that one. It looks great from a motorcycle! There are so many vistas in NM that it's hard to pick one, and I haven't seen all of them. Those from the highest observation area on NM 532 west of Alto, near Sierra Blanca, are stunning, as are the views from the road leading into Mesa Verde.

Hey Catman....yeap i've been up to the top by the ski resort on Mt.Sierra Blanca (12,003 ft) and what a view... You see all the other mountains below you like your in an airplane....There's also a few sites in the Jemes mountains i like and the back side of the Mogollon mountains from Silvercity to Reserve. I should've worked for New Mexico Magazine as a photographer... LOL..
