Fodor's Review

South of Coyote Creek State Park on NM 434, you'll pass through tiny, insular El Turquillo. Here the highway widens as it opens into a broad sunny valley—to the east you'll spy the red-rock cliffs that form the face of Black Mesa, the land barrier between here and the eastern grasslands.
