Trip Planning - New Mexico/Colorado - 8-9 days

Jump to last reply

I could use some help planning a trip to Colorado/New Mexico in early Oct. for DH and myself.

We are thinking about flying in and out of Denver with the following stops along the way:
Great Sands, Mesa Verde, Taos area, Santa Fe area, White Sands (time permitting).

Does this itinerary make sense? How many days in each place? Any suggestions on order? We love to hike but also want to have time to tour the galleries of Santa Fe/Taos, see the area and explore small towns along the way.

Any advice would be appreciated.
