Take the Tram ride to the top of the Sandias while in Albuquerque. The view is fantastic. Go just before dusk and see the sun set. The restaurant at the top used to be a top rated place to eat but it has been years since we ate up there. Be sure to take a light coat/jacket. The temperature will be a lot cooler than at the base of the tram.

Went there in 04. The tram and restaurant were well worth it. Especially since I was treated to dinner.

We are going in May also tentative itinerary:
Carlsbad Caverns, see the caverns
Roswell, see the aliens
Ruidoso, just to see
Albuquerque, ride the tram, old town, take the train to Taos, play golf.
Chama, take the train to Colorado
Angel Fire, just to see
This is a 22 day trip and could easily be much longer.

Ruidoso, Cloudcroft, White Sands, Carlsbad Caverns, Guadalupe Mountains, then south to the Davis Mountains in Texas, McDonald Observatory, stay in Davis Mountains State Park near Ft. Davis.

We did this last Fall after Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. Great trip.

White Sands is amazing. Many years ago I arrived there minutes after a summer thunderstorm. The place looked amazingly beautiful and other-worldly.

Aztec, see the ruins. City of Rocks, Bosque Redondo, Elephant Butte lake. If you make it to Colorado, Visit the Anazi Heritage musuem in Cortez, and then head to Mesa Verde. Most amazing place I have ever seen.

If you're going to be in Carlsbad, check out the Guadalupe Mountains. The McKitrick Canyon hike is worth doing. This place was voted by the wildlife photographers as the most beautiful place in Texas...

Definitely the Aztec Ruins in Aztec NM. There's a beautifully restored kiva - only one I've ever seen. The Anasazi Heritage Center north of Cortez is also fascinating. And Mesa Verde - wow - we've hiked many back country places there, and tomorrow we're off for another hike, this time to Mug House. But - there's so much to see without walking more than 100 feet. I think I qualify for the "senior" label - I'm 66, DW is 64. Have fun in NM (and CO)!
