Thanks folks, for the suggestions so far! I am researching each of them to make my list. Keep them coming!

Did anybody mention the enchanted circle? Taos, angel fire, Red River, Questa? Also the high road from Sante Fe to Taos. Jeep ride up the mountain at Red River. Old town in Albuquerque, also the museum of natural history there!

Check some of the Pueblos for their regulations on visiting & festivals.
Los Alamos is fascinating if you have the time to spend at the museum & learn the history.
A BIG vote for Bandelier National Monument (U.S. National Park Service)
Check for festival days in Santa Fe.
The missions outside Albuquerque Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument (U.S. National Park Service)
Of course Chaco Culture National Historical Park (U.S. National Park Service)

You should have an awesome journey

Navajo Lake state park and the SanJuan River for fly fishing below the dam at Navajo Lake.

We can meet ya there, right down the road.. I would go to Santa Fe, Chama (ride the train), then Navajo Lake, Durango (ride the train), Mesa Verde,, all in the awesome Four Corners.

If you happen to travel I40, stop in Santa Rosa and go see the Blue Hole. I don't really like traveling the Interstates, but we did have a pleasant lunch in Santa Rosa followed by a couple of hours cooling off around the Blue Hole.

Santa Fe is one of our favorite cities ... downtown visit the Palace of Kings and see all the native arts and crafts on the big veranda ... and look at the exhibits inside ... the Georgia O'Keefe galary is special if you are into her art ... the La Fonda hotel is historic and there is a fantastic french pastry shop in there ... I forget the name of the chapel but there is a chapel with a spiral staircase that seems to have no support (truly an amazing item if you are into woodworking or architecture) ... there are a couple of museums up on top of the hill near the state Capital that are interesting.

The state capital is unusual as it is circular ...

I agree with Taos, Angel Fire, Red River, ... the road from Red River to Cimmaron is a scenic drive as I recall

I'm from Las Cruces, New Mexico and go there about 2-3 times per year. Most of the great spots have been mentioned already.... but don't forget Silver City, Mesilla and Las Cruces. Here are some things to keep in mind: it's very, very dry there (like 7% humidity often) so drink more water than usual (bring lotion for possible eczema, rest more, etc.), there can be stretches of road where there's no fuel for almost 200 miles, so fill up when you get to half empty. Get ready for a great time and some spicy food!
