Chimayo New Mexico Vacation

Chimayo New Mexico Vacation Rentals

This past January I spent a week in New Mexico with my good friend Kate. It was her birthday and I said months before that I’d go wherever she wanted to go. We went to New Mexico. In the 6 days there (less if you don’t count arrival on Saturday and leaving on Friday) we put 800 miles on the car we rented. I did the driving.  I was ready for a vacation from my vacation when i returned!

We stayed in Albuquerque and daily left out for day trips. We went to Acoma (already blogged about that) and then headed up to Abiquiu and Cerro Pedernal and checked out the area where Georgia O’Keefe lived for so many years and yes, I know why she loved the area so much. AMAZING!

We drove to Ojo Caliente and Chimayo...

White Sands New Mexico Vacation

White Sands New Mexico Vacation Rentals

The Tularosa Basin, in southern New Mexico, isn’t especially overcrowded today. It was practically uninhabited, at least by the lights of Washington bean-counters, when, 70-odd years ago, chunks of it were given over to serve as a range on which to light up missiles and barrage the poor horned lizards and pronghorn with artillery and tank fire. The firepower would become more awesome in 1945, when the basin saw the world’s first atomic explosion, the one from which bomb inventor Robert Oppenheimer recoiled and said, “Now I am become Death, destroyer of worlds.”

For those of us who grew up during the Cold War and all its weird duck-and-cover glory, White Sands, in the heart of the Tularosa, is and shall ever be ground zero of a particular state of mind...

Albuquerque New Mexico Vacation

New Mexico Vacation Rentals

When you think of traveling by RV down autumn roads made bright by fall foliage, do you think of Albuquerque? You should, because the region surrounding this ancient New Mexico city comes to life when the leaves begin to turn.

One of the best-known ways to see miles and miles of autumn color in Albuquerque is to take the tram to the top of Sandia Crest. Standing more than ten thousand three hundred feet above Cibola National Forest, this peak offers a panoramic view in autumn that is simply stunning. You can also drive to the top of the mountain on Sandia Crest Road.

If you like to do your leaf peeping a little closer to the ground, hiking in Cibola National Forest will fill the bill...

Taos Rio Grande Gorge

Rio Grande Gorge Vacation Rentals

{mosimage}The Rio Grande flows out of the snowcapped Rocky Mountains in Colorado and journeys 1,900 miles to the Gulf of Mexico. It passes through 800-foot chasms of the Rio Grande Gorge a few miles east of Taos New Mexico, a wild and remote area of northern New Mexico. The canyon provides a wide variety of Taos recreational opportunities, luring fishermen, hikers, artists, and whitewater boating enthusiasts. In 1968, the Rio Grande and Red River were among the first eight rivers Congress designated into the National Wild and Scenic River System to protect outstanding resources values.

{mosimage}The Wild Rivers Recreation Area has been set aside to allow visitors to experience the beauty of two national Wild and Scenic Rivers protected by Congress. Here the Rio Grande and Red River are preserved in their natural, free-flowing state for present and future generations to enjoy and appreciate.
