Itinerary Help Durango-Santa Fe-Taos-Albuquerque

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to plan the last four days/nights of an almost three week long trip. By this time we will have done Vegas-Bryce-GCNR-Zion, and then three nights in Mesa Verde/Durango. So, I have a plan but not sure if I'm trying to cram too much in.

Tuesday - Drive Durango to Silverton, look around, then back via Durango and Pagosa Springs to Santa Fe. I think it's about an hour each way Durango to Silverton, then 4 to 4 1/2 hours to Santa Fe. If we left around 9am and didn't feel the need to get to Santa Fe till dinner time would we have time to enjoy Silverton, and maybe lunch in Pagosa Springs?

Wednesday - Santa Fe. Is one full day (plus two other evenings) enough to do the Walking Tours (found in guide books, on line), maybe a little shopping, eating of course. Don't need to do any museums.

Thursday - High Road to Taos. Google maps says it's 77 miles and 2 hr for the high road and 71 miles, 1 1/2 hr for the other way. Does that sound accurate. We would want to stop, at least briefly in most of the towns to take photos. Do we have to do that plus look around Taos itself and also Taos Pueblo?

Friday - Turquoise Trail to Albuquerque. Google maps says 75 miles, 1 3/4 hr. We'd want to stop in Los Cerrillos and Madrid. About how long should we plan. We'd like to get to Albuquerque in time to check into our hotel (near the airport) but then have a few hours to look around the Old Town area (and have dinner). We fly out early Saturday morning.
