Two more NM sites

Sandia Gondola on the NE corner of Abq.

Make sure you get REAL NM food. There is nothing else like it.

Oh my goodness, those of you that mentioned Jerome, did you drive that in a motor home?!?! We just did it in a CAR in March and it is insane! I can't imagine making those turns in a rig. JMO...you would be braver than I.

We park the coach at Dead Horse Ranch in Cottonwood and use the car to go to Jerome, Sedona and Flagstaff.

Wow! What a group! I really didn't expect this many responses.

You all have given me one heck of a list for both states and some great ideas too.

One idea I like is to park the RV and visit areas with the Toad.
It looks like we will set up the MH at a base and branch out from there to cover everything in a determined radius. Then move the base and continue until we cover all our interests or run out of money. Lol

Keep the suggestions coming. I know there must be others who are compiling a list from all these suggestions, too.

Much good fun and grand sights.

Happy trails!
Dave & Nola
I visited your travel blog. Well written with great descriptions and photos. Love the humor mixed in with the photos too. A lot of good ideas that can be listed on our places to see.
I tow a 4 wheel drive Chevy truck so access to a lot of out of the way places will be very possible.
Thanks for your suggestions too.

We stayed at Cochise Terrace Rv Park Outside of Benson Az, The Kartchner Caverns State Park is up the road a bit but had no sewer hook ups, from there we went to Tombstone Bis bee, some old Ghost Towns, Kartchner Caverns and some of the other state parks, if your have a jeep as a toad the people at Cochise go out jeeping on Weds, I didn't get to go this time but will this winter (Lord willing) Tuscon is not far away with Old Tuscon and the State park near there.

Thanks for starting this topic. I am going to glean info off this.

If you would like to see what Jerome looks like thru the picture window of a 33' Motorhome this is it. (not me of course - but instructional - and some great photos)

On Edit trying to remove link - apparently you have to enter the photo bucket through their website.

This should get ya to the links for photos. http://thebayfieldbunch.com/2009/09/...in-in.html?m=1

Tested good - a few clicks should get ya there. A tight squeeze or two, a switchback and a two person job but they made it.

We lived in Tucson for a year, and thought we had seen most everything. Last year we went out for a visit, and we went to Sonoita and Elgin. There are probably about 15 wineries there. It's located 60 miles south of Tucson. You would not believe you are in Arizona when you get there. The climate and topography was just unlike anything we had seen in Arizona.
