Long day trips from Santa Fe?

Jump to last reply

We surprised ourselves with how much we love northern New Mexico, especially the beautiful scenery and natural areas. We have a few more days here and enough time for a few loooong day trips. Stunning landscapes, pueblos and historical sites are of most interest. We are from California so Western ghost towns are of less interest to us, having seen quite a few growing up.

On the drive up from Albuquerque we stopped at Tent Rocks. Marvelous! We are thinking of driving to Taos Pueblo on January 1 to see the ceremonial dance. Any recommendations for stops to make this a long day (or will it be anyway)?

We are also considering a big loop on another day: Bandelier, Jemez and Puye Cliff dwellings. Can this be done or are we getting insanely greedy? What would you cut?

This area is terrific and there's just so much to see that it is hard to choose.

Thanks!
