Just got back from a couple of weeks on the road visiting Northern New Mexico. One of my favorite areas ever since I visited Philmont as a Scout in '67. We left home without a fixed itinerary and a simple desire for green chili. We ended up visiting some old favorites and some new ones as well.
The bikes traveled well under the new Soft Topper. 5 minutes to get the bikes on the road, and the topper buttoned up.
Valles Caldera. Wow. It comes under control of the National Park Service at next month. We will be back. (Just hope they don't turn it in to the South Rim.)
Our campsite at Chaco Canyon backed right up to a cliff dwelling.

Biking is a great way to see Chaco
Jemez Falls (NFS)
Red River is a great little old fashioned vacation/ski town. Michael Martin Murphy plays there at his ranch during the summer. Cowboy music and a chuck wagon dinner, and a chance to wear my boots!
Sorry. You have to turn your monitor to see the little trailer in the center of this pic at Jacks Creek (NFS) near Pecos
