I'll be in the Albuquerque area for a 3 day weekend in late August, and I'm looking for ideas. I don't really enjoy all of the Southwestern type stuff, but I'm open to suggestions if it's something I shouldn't miss. I like visiting historic buildings/houses/hotels, art museums (something with more than Southwestern art), and quirky/unique attractions. I also like to hike and be outdoors. I can do longer hikes, but my wife might need an idea for something a little less strenuous than what I'd do. I thought being near the mountains would be good, but I can't figure out where to start. I'm also wondering if there would be enough water in the rivers for rafting. I don't want to spend a lot of time on the road because I've only got 3 days, but I was also considering Ruidoso or Taos instead of Albuquerque. We've been to Santa Fe several times, so I haven't thought much about going back there. Are there any places that I should consider to the west of Albuquerque?
