    If you want to get off the beaten path a bit and do a little less touristy photography or you just happen to be driving on US-285 north between I-40 and I-25 there is one of the most breathtaking views I believe New Mexico has to offer with the Sangre de Christo Mountains in the background, in the late afternoon (especially after a monsoon rain.) You'll know you're there when you see it. Farther north of that is the rail town of Lamy, NM. There's a couple of "Shootworthies" there. I'd also suggest the Pecos National Monument. It cost a couple of bucks to get in but I thought it was well worth it as it was a safe place to take my 9 year old (no cliffs, wild running rivers, falling rocks or wild animals, etc.) There is some nice scenery between Socorro and the VLA too if you're gonna head that way. I didn't have time to stop when going through (I almost never do) but I sure woulda liked to. Enjoy New Mexico!

    Stagecoach was my favorite hotsprings in and around Taos. I recall seeing nothing but dirt and sagebrush out of every window of a VW bus but the rear one enroute there one time...
    Yes Ritas is still there. Chicken mole burrito my fav. Spent 7 years living with that dirt and sagebrush, great stuff.

    You've obviously over looked vast areas of New Mexico.

    We lived in NM during my most formative years, and I've been back numerous times, he obviously missed 99% of that beautiful state. I think people see places only from the interstate highways, and thats the only impression they have of a state(or area).
