Logistics and route help for a Santa Fe/Mesa Verde trip.

Jump to last reply

Travel will be next year in late June or early July. We will be arriving from the West Coast. My givens are to see Mesa Verde, preferably staying in Far View Lodge for at least two nights, maybe three. I also want to spend at least 5 to 6 nights in Santa Fe.

What is the best way to do that? Drive from ABQ to Mesa Verde first, then on to SantaFe? Or the other way around?

How would one incorporate a visit to Chaco Canyon into all of this? An overnight in Farmington or Bloomfield? Or a "drive by" on our way from Mesa Verde to Santa Fe?

I'd like to keep the trip to 10 or 11 nights of travel time. I've looked at maps and so far I am a little baffled by what an itinerary would look like.

2 nights Far View Lodge
2 nights near Farmington/Bloomfield in order to see Chaco Canyon and Aztec
6 nights in Santa Fe. Tent Rocks, Bandelier, Pueblos, Shop and Eat.

Is the drive from Farmington/Bloomfield area to Santa Fe on the 64/84 route a scenic route or have anything to recommend it?

Thanks for your help.
