    If you're gonna be in the southern part, might check out Cloudcroft. It's a mountainess oasis in the middle of the flatness.

    Wait until you see the cinnamon rolls in person.

    I have a friend that purchased a property in the Red River area a few years ago that he rents when not using it. I can inquire about availability or pm his info to you.

    That might be interesting to look into. I'm not sure if it would fit our needs, but I'd be willing to look. We checked into VRBO and AirBnB and such and the GD'd FEES they charge these days ends up pricing most of them out of my range.

    I actually just booked a hotel in ABQ for 2 nights and Santa Fe for 6 nights, just to have a place set - we can cancel or alter any time, but we've spent all day looking at this stuff and I'm kinda crosseyed.

    I'll add one more vote for Taos.
    Rio Grande gorge is amazing. Might see desert bighorns on the north side of the road going out there.
    The Pueblo is interesting to see and we like Orlando's out on the north end of town.
    Blue corn enchilada's were killer.

    We did that drive last summer. It had been a few years since we did it last, and it seemed the trail was a little rougher than it was, say 3-4 years ago. It was fun though and Goose lake is beautiful. Hiking in there would be a good trip, may try to convince family to do that.

    Checked on the friend's house near Red River. https://www.reservationsunlimited.com/units/520 manages the guest stays and cleanup for him. Probably not what you're looking for. Sleeps 12 and is already booked for most of June. There may be other properties available through that website though. Hope you have a great trip. We're considering a trip to NM in late July, but I'm really wanting to go to Utah.

    And, if you're in Cloudcroft, be sure to check out The Lodge, if it has re-opened. At least have a drink at the bar and climb the stairs into the watch tower. Check out all the autographs on the walls heading up to the tower. You'll find Clark Gable and, IIRC, Audrey Hepburn and others. We spent a night there and we were in the smallest hotel room I have ever seen in my life!
