New Mexico - Mesa Verde - Durango: Looking for itinerary suggestions

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a trip (August 2011) that I want to include Santa Fe (Taos), Mesa Verde and Durango. Not sure how best to organize it. We'll be flying into Albuquerque (from a week in the Bryce/Zion/Grand Canyon area). We'll have about a week and want a few days in Santa Fe/Taos, want to see Mesa Verde, and probably do the Durango Silverton Train Ride. We'll be flying out of Albuquerque.

I don't want to drive all the way to Durango the day we arrive, as I think it will be late afternoon (haven't booked tickets yet but that's what the schedule looks like now). Should we stop in Santa Fe the first night or is there someplace else that makes more sense, between Albuquerque and Mesa Verde. We probably want to spend the last night in Santa Fe. Assuming we want at least a couple of days in Santa Fe does it make sense to have them at the end of the week?

How many nights in each place would you suggest? Thanks
